Jensen Fifth in Heptathlon, a Tie in the Decathlonat NCAA DIII Champs

Concordia-Moorhead's Kaari Jensen finished fifth in the heptathlon scoring 4749 points.  Dani Larson of St. Olaf finished seventh in the women's high jump, clearing 5'7"(1.70m). St. Scholastica's Kevin Wagner and St. Thomas' Maxwell Dunne tied for ninth in the decathlon with 6454 points. St. Thomas' Gavin Yseth was 11th with 6308 points.  Wagner would have been awarded ninth place if the competition were under IAAF rules as ties there are broken by the athlete who has scored the most points in the most events, which Wagner did in six of the ten events, but the NCAA does not break ties.

St. Thomas' Eyo Ekpo was sixth in the high jump clearing 6'9"(2.06m).  Macalester's Logan Hovie(6'6.75"/2m) was 17th.  In the men's team scores Gustavus is 15th with 6 points, and St. Thomas is 24th with 3 points. In the women's team race Hamline is ninth with 10 points, St. Olaf 20th with five points, and Concordia-Moorhead 23rd with four points. Full Thursday/Friday results are HERE.
