For the first time in school history, a female athlete from New Mexico Highlands University is a national champion.
Jillisa Grant earned that distinction by winning the long jump late Thursday in the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field Championships, a meet being hosted by Cal State-Stanislaus in Turlock, Calif.
Highlands scored team points in several other events and wound up tied for 13th in the women’s team standings. There were more than 60 schools represented in the meet.
