DELAWARE, Ohio - Senior Jaclyn Mohlmann once again posted a strong first day Monday in the heptathlon as she attempts to qualify for the NCAA National Championships.

Competing at a Last Chance Meet hosted by Ohio Wesleyan, Mohlmann recorded 2,561 points after day one of the two-day, seven-event competition.

Mohlmann opened the day with a 15.64 in the 100-meter hurdles for 759 points and a 1.51 meter high jump for an additional 632 points.

A personal best throw of 9.37 meters in the shot put earned another 488 points before she completed the afternoon with a 27.36 second 200-meter dash for her final 682 points of the day.

The 2,561 total is just short of the 2,590 she had last week at Lynchburg.

On Tuesday, she will compete in the long jump, the javelin and the 800 meters.

The meet concludes on Tuesday with Mohlmann's opening event, the long jump, scheduled for a 1 p.m., start.
