Forry Takes 19th in High Jump on Second Day of NCAA Championships


BRADENTON, Fla. - University of California San Diego senior Savanna Forry finished 19th in the high jump on the second day of the 2017 NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field Championships Friday at IMG Academy Stadium.

The three-day competition is co-hosted by the University of Tampa and IMG Academy. UC San Diego has a total of three student-athletes present at this year's meet.

Forry, competing in her third NCAA Championships, cleared a height of 5'3.75" on her third attempt in the opening round. She failed to clear the next height, 5'5.75", in three tries, taking 19th place overall. Forry grabbed All-America status at the 2015 and 2016 NCAA Championships after finishing in 11th place in the high jump at both meets.

"Savanna did not have the success at nationals she was looking for tonight, but has had an amazing four-year run with many moments in the sun," said women's head coach Darcy Ahner. "She has been an exemplary team leader and captain who has been nothing short of spectacular."

Humboldt State's Marissa McCay won the national title in the event after clearing a height of 5'9.75", the only qualifier to do so.

Senior Chrissi Carr will wrap up competition for UCSD at the NCAA Championships in the pole vault Saturday, May 27, at 11:30 a.m. PT.
