Sonja Kosir, a freshman as well, became the first University of Cincinnati Running Club high jumper. She jumped 4"6' on her first try and cleared 4"8' on her second try. She cleared 4"8' and now holds the club record in the high jump. It will be exciting to see how Sonja progresed throughout the season, as she shoots to clear 4"10' next and keep moving up.

The cats are off to a great start of the track season and only look to improve from here. There next meet will be Mid March and will be on an outdoor track, which should be more ideal. Cats by five like always!
