Megan Glisar placed second in section A of the women’s high jump as the University of South Dakota track and field team finished competition at the Texas Relays on Saturday.
Glisar, Auburn’s Maya Pressley and Texas’ Shanay Briscoe all tied for the top-mark of 6 feet (6-0), but Pressley won the event by reaching that mark with fewer misses. Pressley had one miss leading up to the final mark, while Glisar had three misses and Briscoe had four.
