Minnesota State - Mankato high jumper Jim Dilling was the upset winner of the high jump at AT&T USA Outdoor Championships. Dilling cleared 7-5 1/4 for the victory which earned him the right to compete in the IAAF World Track and Field Championships in Osaka, Japan later this summer.
Also today ... Former Mounds View High School and U of M all-American Trent Riter finished 8th in 1:48.00 in the finals of the 800 meters. In the 1500 meters, Winona native Garrett Heath of Stanford finished 9th in 3:42.88 while Minnetonka High School grad Will Leer was 10th in 3:44.20. Mankato's Katelin Rains was unable -- like six other athletes -- to clear the 13-9 1/4 opening pole vault.
