GENEVA, Ohio -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology junior Jaclyn Setina placed 13th in the women's high jump at the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field National Championships on Friday at the SPIRE Institute.

Setina matched her finish at the NCAA Division III Indoor National Championships with the 13th place performance.  She cleared 5' 3 3/4" on the first attempt, after clearing two previous heights on the first attempt.

Setina is a five-time HCAC event champion, sweeping the indoor and outdoor high jump titles in 2016 and 2017.  Setina is also part of the school record 4-x-400 meter relay team.

Setina is the second of three Rose-Hulman competitors who will perform at this week's NCAA Division III Outdoor Championships.  Junior Josh Himes finished 12th in the discus throw on Thursday (150' 5") and sophomore Trey Sykes competes on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. in the men's triple jump.

Sykes is ranked No. 6 nationally in the triple jump with a season-best mark of 48' 11".  He earned All-American honors with a seventh-place finish in the triple jump at the NCAA Nationals.  Sykes is a two-time HCAC outdoor triple jump champion and is ranked No. 2 in school history in the event.

The Rose-Hulman track and field program has a tradition of success that includes 10 national championship performances and 51 All-American honors.  Under the direction of head coach Larry Cole, the men's squad has won 10 consecutive HCAC outdoor championships and seven straight indoor titles. The 2017 women's squad came home second outdoors and third indoors in the 2017 HCAC championships.
