DES MOINES – Former Sergeant Bluff-Luton state champion Megan Glisar-Wegher will be inducted into the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union’s Track and Field Hall of Fame on Saturday.

Glisar-Wegher is one of two girls to win four state championships in the high jump. Competing for Sergeant Bluff-Luton from 2005 to 2009, she won the Class 2A high jump title as a freshman and Class 3A crowns her sophomore, junior and senior seasons. She also held five track and field records at Sergeant Bluff-Luton.

After stints as the University of Iowa and Morningside, where she won the NAIA indoor national championship in 2012, Glisar-Wegher enjoyed a stellar three-year career at the University of South Dakota. She was a two-time first-team NCAA Division I All-American in the high jump, finishing sixth in the NCAA Outdoor Championships in 2013 and fourth in the 2014 NCAA Division I Indoor Championships.

Glisar-Wegher owns South Dakota school records in the indoor and outdoor high jump with a career best 6-0.75. She also owns the Summit League’s indoor and outdoor high marks.

She has competed at the USA National Championships, placing third at the USA Indoor National Championships in 2014 and 13th at the 2015 USA Outdoor National Championships.

Glisar-Wegher was also named to be inducted into the Sioux City Relays Hall of Fame before the second day of the event was canceled because of weather.

A three-sport athlete for the Warriors, garnering all-conference laurels in volleyball and basketball, she added four straight Sioux City Relays high jump wins to her four-peat at the state meet. Meanwhile, she qualified for a whopping 15 state meet events over four seasons, one shy of the maximum, setting school records in the 200 and 400 sprints as well as two relays.
