For the second straight year, Tamara McCaskill, ChE’10, saved her best performance for last as she finished as the national runner-up in the high jump at the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Johnson C. Smith University.

McCaskill cleared 5-8, her best mark of the season, to take the second-place spot behind Emporia State’s Jennifer Robinson. She cleared each of the first four heights on her first attempt, but missed on all three tries at 5-9 ¼, which turned out to be the winning height cleared by Robinson.

McCaskill was one of three from S&T to earn All-America honors at the national meet, joining Dan Hellwig, a senior in computer science, who placed third in the pole vault, and Terry Robinson, who was fourth in the 400-meter hurdles with a school record time of 50.98 seconds.
