Oak Park and River Forest High School alum Yasmin Ruff won the pole vault title for Washington University (St. Louis) at the NCAA Division III women’s outdoor track and field championships, May 23-25, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. 

“Winning a national championship has been a longtime goal of mine,” said Ruff, a 2020 graduate whose winning height was 4.06 meters (13-3 ¾). “All the blood, sweat, and tears I put into my training finally paid off. It was a feeling I will never forget.”
