Wirth Earns All-America Honors At NCAA Nationals

 

EUGENE, Ore. – South Dakota State junior high jumper Mary Wirth tied for 12th at the 2014 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track and Field Championships with her height of 5 feet, 9 3/4 inches.

At the first height of 5-7 3/4, the Sioux Falls native missed her first attempt, but she came back strong to clear the height on her second attempt. At 5-9 3/4, she cleared the height on her first try.

At 5-10 3/4, Wirth missed her three attempts and fouled out.

With her 12th-place finish, Wirth garners second-team All-American honors. She is the first Jackrabbit on the women’s side to be named an All-American in the Division I era.

During the 2013-14 school year, she set both high jump school records (indoor 5-10, outdoor 5-10 3/4), won the 2014 Summit League Outdoor Track and Field Championships high jump title, placed second in the high jump at the 2013-14 Summit League Indoor Track and Field Championships, was named Academic All-League and was named Summit League Track and Field Female Athlete of the Week (April 1).

Wirth is currently documenting her week in Eugene in her blog, which you can read here.
