Mohl ends career as Bobcat 11th in decathlon, receives All-American honors


Montana State senior Jeff Mohl will end his time with the Blue and Gold as an All-American decathlete.

Mohl finished 11th overall at the conclusion of the men's decathlon, picking up 7.533 points. That was a season best and it also earned Mohl All-American honors.

After ending day one of the decathlon in 10th place, Mohl would struggle at the beginning of the second day of events. Mohl finished 20th overall in the 110 meter hurdles and then finished 17th in the discus.

Mohl would move up in the standings after finishing 5th in the pole vault by clearing 16 feet, 3/4 inches. Mohl would then finish 17th in the javelin with only the 1500 meter race remaining.

The senior saved his best performance for last, finishing 5th overall in the 1500 with a time of 4 minutes, 38.44 seconds, moving Mohl from 13th in the decathlon standings to 11th.

Montana State's Carley McCutchen began her quest for a heptathlon title today, finishing 18th overall after the first day of heptathlon events.

McCutchen would finish 16th in the 100 meter hurdles to begin the day but would then have the best performance of her career in the high jump. McCutchen would clear 5 feet, 7 and 3/4 inches. That would give her a 7th place finish in the event, but that was a new personal record for McCutchen.

The final three events of the heptathlon begin at 1:30 p.m. on Friday
