Redshirt sophomore Cameron Ostrowski captured the sixth top-10 finish by a Cyclone at the nation’s premiere track and field event, tying for fifth in the senior men’s high jump.
Ostrowski had no trouble over the bar on his first two jumps, clearing 7-00 1/2 and 7-02 1/2 on consecutive attempts. The Burlington, Ill., native then failed clear 7-04.50, but at 7-02 1/2, Ostrowski tied his career best, the third time he has cleared the height.
