It was a quick exit for South Dakota’s Emily Grove at the IAAF World Championships in London.

Grove missed on all three of her attempts at the opening height – 13-9 1/4 – during Friday’s (August 4) qualifying round.

The Coyote senior had cleared 15-1 earlier this summer to qualify for Team USA at the World Championships. She was the 2017 Summit League Outdoor Athlete of the Year and defending Summit League champion in the women’s pole vault.

Also in London this weekend, fellow Coyote Chris Nilsen competes in the men’s pole vault. Qualifying begins at 4:40 AM Central, Sunday (August 6).
