Jaclyn Setina Finishes 5th Nationally at D-III Nationals

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology senior Jaclyn Setina became the 53rd All-American in Fightin' Engineer track and field history with a fifth-place high jump finish at the NCAA Division III national championship on Saturday.

Setina cleared 5' 6" to secure 5th place among the nation's top 17 NCAA Division III women's high jump competitors at the national meet.  Setina also became just the second Fightin' Engineer women's track and field athlete to earn All-American honors, joining her current jumps coach and five-time national champion Liz Evans.  The effort marked Setina's top performance in three appearances at the NCAA championships after a pair of 13th place finishes in both the indoor and outdoor championships in 2017.  

Setina has enjoyed a standout career at Rose-Hulman with seven Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference individual championships. She is a five-time high jump conference champion (indoors 2016-18; outdoors 2016-17) and has also been a member of winning 4-x-200 and 4-x-400 indoor relays during her career.

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' 6 1/4") high jump.
