SU roundup: Mohlmann wins Lynchburg heptathlon

Daily Staff Reports - sports@nvdaily.com

LYNCHBURG -- Shenandoah University senior Jaclyn Mohlmann set a new school record in the heptathlon Tuesday on her way to winning the Lynchburg multi-event meet.

Battling through weather conditions that delayed the meet by more than seven hours, Mohlmann scored 1,667 points Tuesday to total 4,257 points and win the event by 229 points over Jill Baxter from Anderson (S.C.).

Originally scheduled to begin competing at 12:30, Mohlmann started her day with a leap of 4.54 meters in the long jump at approximately 5:30.

She then was able to complete one throw in the javelin before another lightning delay held up the meet by an additional hour.

Coming back after a 15-minute warmup, Mohlmann had a toss of 27.93 meters on her second throw to post a 437 point total.

She completed the day by scoring 792 points in the 800 meters after posting a 2:22:31.

The 4,257 total breaks the record that Mohlmann previously set in the Liberty Collegiate Invitational at the beginning of April.

Mohlmann will now take the rest of the week off for final exams and returns to the track with the Ohio Wesleyan last chance meet this coming Monday and Tuesday.
