Jaclyn Setina to Compete at D-III Nationals on Saturday



TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology junior Jaclyn Setina is headed to the NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field National Championships after a successful indoor season.

Setina ranks No. 17 nationally in the high jump after clearing 5' 6 3/4" at the Engineer Invitational in January.  The competition will take place on Saturday at 1 p.m. CT at North Central College in Naperville, Ill.

Setina has enjoyed a solid career at Rose-Hulman with four Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference individual championships.  She captured the high jump championships indoors in 2016 (5' 4 1/2") and 2017 (5' 4 1/4") and was also the 2016 outdoor titleist (5' 0 1/2").  Setina was also a memorable of a conference championship 4-x-400 meter indoor relay team in 2015.

Her efforts include a school record as part of the 4-x-400 relay (4:09.70) and a No. 2 ranking in both the indoor (5' 6 1/4") and outdoor (5' 4 1/4") high jump.

Setina continues a women's high jump tradition of success at the NCAA Championships.  Her current position coach, Liz Evans, won five national championships and was an eight-time NCAA Division III All-American at Rose-Hulman.
