Rosemary Fiekert came just short of an All-American day.
The Cal State Stanislaus junior pole vaulter finished 10th at the NCAA Division II Indoor Track & Field Championships in Mankato, Minn. Fiekert cleared 12-feet, 1½-inches with no misses, a season-high, but faced tough competition according to pole vault coach Tom Brenda.
The top eight finalists earn All-American status. Kaitlin Rains of Minnesota State won the event with a height of 14-1¾.
