LA CROSSE, Wisc. -- Texas Lutheran University junior Cortnee Priour is the latest All-American in Bulldog Women's Track & Field after finishing seventh Thursday in the long jump at the 2018 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships.

The top eight in each event receive All-America status. Priour took seventh in the long jump with a near-personal-best leap of 18 feet, 9.75 inches. Her top mark Thursday came on her very first jump of the competition.

Trinity University's Britney Sullivan also competed in the event, jumped 5.49 meters to finish in 14th place and is the first Trinity student-athlete to compete in the event at nationals since 2009.

Molly McCullough of Trinity automatically qualified for the finals of the 3000 meter steeplechase by finishing fourth in her heat with a time of 10:53.53. McCullough improved her time at last year's nationals by 12 seconds.
