She will compete at 2 p.m. on Saturday. Turner, who jumped a SLU indoor record 1.63 meters in her first collegiate meet and then improved the record to 1.68 meters in her next meet made the field on a tie-breaker.

Her 17:13.25 at Tufts on Saturday jump ed her into 13th position on the qualifying chart and into the title race at North Central.
