March 12, 2010

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Jane Doolittle cleared 5'10" (1.78m) in the high jump at the NCAA Indoor Championships, hosted by the University of Arkansas at Randal Tyson Track Center.

Doolittle was one of eight athletes to clear 5'10", which was the fifth-highest bar cleared on the day. The top athlete to clear 5'10" was placed at eighth, but Doolittle was placed 15th based on misses at earlier heights.

The winner of the women's high jump was Elizabeth Patterson from Arizona, who was the only athlete who cleared 6'4" (1.93m). The next-best height was 6'2.75" (1.90m), which was cleared by Amber Kaufman of Hawaii.

Doolittle was the first UCSB competitor to qualify for the NCAA Indoor Championships, in the women's track program's second year of indoor competition.
