Davonta Womack

GENEVA, Ohio — Salem High School graduate Davonta Womack of Bridgewater College won the men’s 100 meters Saturday at the NCAA Division III outdoor track and field national championships.

The fourth-year junior broke ODAC and Bridgewater records with a time of 10.20 seconds — the second-best time in the history of the meet.

He edged Ryan Miller of Saint John’s (Minnesota), who took second in 10.22 seconds.

Womack earned first-team All-America honors for the third time in as many days and for the fifth time in his career.

On Thursday, he took sixth in the long jump. Earlier Saturday, he ran the anchor leg of the Bridgewater 4x100 relay team that finished sixth with a time of 41.78 seconds.

Womack helped the Eagles tie for eighth place in the men’s team standings at the three-day meet.
