PRINCETON, N.J. — The University of Maine’s Jesse Labreck leads the heptathlon at the ECAC championships with a score of 3,491 after day one as she set a UMaine school-record in the high jump.

Labreck began the day by winning the 100-meter hurdle event with a time of 13.67 seconds, just .22 seconds off the pace of her own school-record performance of 13.45 set in 2011.

Labreck followed up the hurdles with a win in the high jump. The senior’s jump of 5 feet, 11.5 inches smashed the old school-record by 2.25 inches.

Labreck placed sixth in the shot put with a throw of 35-9.5 before finishing second in the 200 meters in 25.15. She leads the heptathlon with 3,491 points.

She is hoping her efforts in the ECAC meet will earn her a qualifying berth in the NCAA Division I championships. She will conclude the heptathlon Saturday with the long jump, javelin throw and 800 run.
