SU roundup: Mohlmann becomes Shenandoah's first NCAA indoor qualifier

Daily Staff Report - sports@nvdaily.com

INDIANAPOLIS -- Shenandoah University junior Jaclyn Mohlmann has received official notification of her qualification for the 2014 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships in performance lists released Monday by the NCAA.

Mohlmann will be one of 17 women competing in the indoor pentathlon on Friday at the Deveney Center on the campus of the University of Nebraska.

Nebraska Wesleyan is the host of this year's championship.

Mohlmann has the 14th best score nationally, 3,360, in the event. She set this school record mark last week at the North Central Final Qualifier.

The indoor pentathlon consists of the 60-meter high hurdles, high jump, shot put, long jump and 800-meter run.

Mohlmann is the first SU athlete, male or female, to qualify for the indoor national championships.

Baseball

SALISBURY, Md. - No. 10 Salisbury University scored single runs in the first, third and fifth innings Monday afternoon to key a 5-1 non-league baseball victory over Shenandoah.

Shenandoah (7-2), which was held to five hits, left eight runners on base and had three innings in which it placed the first two batters of the frame on base without scoring.

Trailing 3-0 in the seventh, the Hornets loaded the bases with no outs only to line into a double play at first base and then fly out to center to allow Salisbury (9-2) to escape unscathed.

Connor Shockley (2-0) pitched the Sea Gulls to the victory. Shockley, a southpaw, scattered three hits and five walks in the initial 6.0 innings to earn the win.

He struck out three.

Sophomore Philip Morse (1-1) took the loss for the visitors. Morse allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits and one walk in 5 1/3 innings of work.

Morse struck out five before turning it over to Cody Vorous in the middle of the sixth.

Corbin Lucas had two hits with Dan Powers, Michael Paul and JJ McDaniel getting one each for coach Kevin Anderson's club.

Paul scored the Hornets' lone run by scampering home from third on a wild pitch in the ninth. He led off the frame with a single down the right-field line, moved to second on McDaniel's infield single and third on a Daniel Freshley walk.

Shenandoah continues this trip to the Delmarva Peninsula with a non-league game at Wesley Tuesday afternoon.

FOREST -- Senior Samantha Sisson has been named Old Dominion Athletic Conference Player of the Week for women's lacrosse in selections announced Monday afternoon by the league office.
