BROOKINGS, S.D. – Jaiden Peraza placed 12th in high jump and Taylor Sargent finished 29th in the 60-meter hurdles on Friday as they represented VCSU at the NAIA Indoor Track & Field National Championships.

 Peraza – a freshman from Kindred, N.D. – cleared 2.01 meters (6 feet, 7 inches) in the high jump during his first appearance at nationals. Peraza landed in a seven-way tie for 7th place, but dropped to an official finish of 12th place on tiebreaker criteria (who cleared the height in fewer attempts).
