Jacobson and Johnsen Earn All-America Honors as Men Wrap Up NCAA Championships

Jun 10, 2022

EUGENE, Ore. - After qualifying for nationals with a personal best jump of 2.18m, Mitch Jacobson raised his lifetime best high jump mark to 2.21m and finished fifth overall while Colton Johnsen placed 11th in the steeplechase final as the Washington State men's track and field team closed out the 2022 NCAA Championships Friday evening at Hayward Field.

Jacobsen was one of only four in the field to clear both 2.10m and 2.15 on his first attempts to start the day. He ran into trouble at 2.18m, missing on his first two before clearing his third jump. The Walla Walla native then took only two tries to secure his top-eight finish with a new PR at 2.21m (7'-3'). 

Johnsen qualified for his second-consecutive NCAA Championships final in the steeplechase with a lifetime best in Wednesday's semifinal round. After finishing Friday's final at 8:37.38, he becomes the first back-to-back All-American in the event since Julius Korir in 1984-85.

Aislinn Overby will look to carry on the WSU jumpers' success this week as she competes in the women's high jump final tomorrow beginning at 2 p.m., closing out the week at the NCAA Championships for the Cougars.
