Larsen's score was the seventh-best ever for an American. The junior from Aberdeen, Wash., was seventh in the heptathlon and eighth in the high jump at the 1984 Olympic Trials. Janet Nicolls of Pomona was second with 5,619 points.
Robert Ekpete of Mount Saint Mary's won the decathlon with 7,380 points.
