ALBUQUERQUE, NM — South Dakota high jumper Megan Glisar tied her school record height of 6 feet, 0¾ inches to place third while pole vaulter Emily Grove set a new school record of 14-9½ to place sixth at the USATF Indoor Championships at the ABQ Convention Center on Sunday.

Glisar cleared the first three heights (5-9¾, 5-11½, 6-0¾) of the competition on her first attempt before missing at 6-2. Inika McPherson, who competed unattached, won the event at 6-3¼.

Grove topped the previous school-best of 14-7½ set by Bethany Firsick at the NCAA Division I Outdoor Track and Field Championships last June.  She cleared 13-11¾, 14-5½ and 14-9½ all on her third attempt and now ranks first on the Division I pole vault performance list.  Mary Saxer of the New York Athletic Club (NYAC) won the event with a height of 15-5½.
