CTF: Glisar Helps Yotes Jump Ahead

CTF: Glisar Helps Yotes Jump Ahead
VERMILLION, SD -

Megan Glisar has been on quite the ride through her collegiate track and field career. She has transferred between three schools and is finally at a place she can call home.

Glisar grew up in the Sioux City, IA area, just miles away from Vermillion, but USD wasn't on her radar. She began her journey at the University of Iowa before transferring to Morningside where she won the NAIA high jump championship. Last year she made the jump to South Dakota and is loving every minute of it.

"Now that I am here and have discovered the coaching staff and the program in general are amazing. I really think I took it for granted that USD was this close to home and I didn't even look them. So I really regret that, but I am very happy that I ended up here and it has worked out," USD Senior High Jumper Megan Glisar said.

Last year at the Outdoor Finals Glisar watched her team mate Bethany Firsick claim the first D1 title in South Dakota history. That only made the junior work that much harder to win one of her own.

"Watching Bethany get her National Championship title was amazing and it put me in shock that whole night. To see what someone from my team could do and how powerful that was really gave me inspiration for the next day," Glisar said.

Glisar finished sixth at that meet and contributed to the overall team’s success which was a goal of hers. Now entering her final events she has jotted National Champion down on her to do list.

"When I came to USD winning a National Championship wasn't on my bucket list, because when you think of division one the competition is at a whole new level and now after indoors and coming into outdoors after what I have done it definitely is," Glisar said.

The USD track team will be in Ames, IA this weekend for the Iowa St. Classic. Tune in tomorrow night to hear from reigning National Champion pole vaulter Bethany Firsick.
