South Dakota’s Megan Glisar Takes Sixth in NCAA High Jump, Coyote Women Finish in Top 20
South Dakota junior Megan Glisar capped a big weekend for the Coyote women’s track team with a sixth place finish in the high jump at the NCAA Track & Field Championships in Eugene, Oregon.
Glisar, the 2012 NAIA indoor champ for Morningside College, made her first four jumps Saturday, the last at six feet, before failing on three attempts at 6′ 1 1/4″. The six-foot jump tied a season best for Glisar.
The sixth place finish gave the Coyotes three team points. Those combined with the 12 points picked up in the pole vault Friday, gave USD a total of 15 points, good for a share of 18th place with Michigan State. The finish was 16 spots higher than last year’s nationals performance.
