Treasure registered the seventh best mark in Wildcat history and tied her career high with a leap of 6′ 0″ in the high jump at the K-State Open. The native Canadian and redshirt sophomore also leads the Big 12 in the event, as she will look to win a second straight Big 12 title this weekend in Ames, IA.

Treasure is the second Wildcat to win the award this year as Devin Dick was tabbed with the honor following his win in the heptathlon at the Bill Bergan Invitational.
