FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Washington State freshman Ebba Jungmark (pronounced eh-bah yoon-mark) won the women's high jump at the 44th Annual Men's NCAA Indoor Championship and the 26th Annual Women's NCAA Indoor Championships Friday, at the Randal Tyson Track Center at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville.

Jungmark, from Onsala, Sweden, cleared the bar at 6-feet, 2 1/4 inches (1.89m), which improved her NCAA qualifying and personal-best mark of 6-2 (1.88m), set last month in Pullman. This is the second-best women's high jump in WSU history.

She is the second NCAA women's track indoor champion for Washington State, following in fellow high jumper Mary Moore's footsteps. Moore, who owns the school high jump record of 6-3, won NCAA titles in 1984 and 1985.

Jungmark arrived in Pullman and began classes at WSU in January of this year. She was a member of the Swedish national team and competed at the 2007 World Championships at Osaka, Japan, finished 11th in high jump after clearing 6-2. Her lifetime-best outdoor mark is 6-3 1/2 (1.93m) achieved June 10, 2007, at Kil, Sweden.
