PROVO, Utah – BYU's Dakoda John set a personal record and took first in the men's high jump at the New Balance Invitational on Friday in New York.
John cleared a height of 7-00.50, which ties him with Eric Crow for 10th place on No. 19 BYU's all-time leader board for the event.
"Dakoda jumped extremely well today," head coach Mark Robison said. "It was the highlight of our day. As a team we did well, but not great. We hope tomorrow we can pick things up a bit."
John Glazier fared well in the long jump for BYU, taking 10th overall, jumping a distance of 22-10.00. Jonathan Ferguson also competed for the Cougars, finishing in 14th place with a mark of 21-09.50.
