Another Top Four Finish For A South Dakota Jumper At The NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships

For the second time in as many days, a South Dakota jumper has claimed her spot as one of the four best in the nation.

Saturday it was senior Megan Glisar taking fourth in the women’s high jump at the NCAA Indoor Championships in Albuquerque.

Gliasr was one of five entrants to jump as high as six feet one-half inch in the field of 16 athletes.  She got fourth based on two previous misses at 5-11 3/4.  Sophomore Dior Delophont of Kentucky took third on the strength of one fewer miss at that height.

South Carolina senior Jeannelle Scheper had no previous misses at 5-11 3/4 and got second.

A freshman from Georgia, Leonita Kallenou, won the event with the only jump to clear 6-1 1/2.

Friday, USD’s Emily Grove and Bethany Firsick took second and fourth in the women’s pole vault.

Based on the strength of those three performances, South Dakota finished tied for 10th with Mississippi State in the team standings with 18 points.

The finish is the highest ever for a USD track and field team in the school’s Division I era.
