Setting a High Bar

Hailing from Keller, Texas, freshman high-jumper Sanaä Barnes became the first Villanova woman to be an All-American in a field event with a fourth-place finish in the high jump at the NCAA Indoor Championships in March and a sixth-place finish at the NCAA Outdoor Championships in June.

She broke the Villanova record in the high jump for the second time this season when she cleared the bar at a height of 1.84 meters at the indoor competition.
