Eugene, OR – Caleb Snowden, a track star high jumper from the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, delivered a standout performance and secured third place in the high jump event on Friday night at Hayward Field during the 2024 NCAA Outdoor National Championships. Snowden’s impressive leap of 2.23m (7-3 ¾) earned him a spot on the First-Team All-American list.

“I felt good competing against some of the best athletes in the country and holding my own,” said Snowden. “Being in this atmosphere and representing my school while the crowd cheered me on was terrific.”

Earlier this year, at the NCAA Indoor Championships, Snowden made history by becoming the first student-athlete in the program’s history to be named an All-American since joining the NCAA.

Additionally, Snowden is the first high jumper from a Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) to achieve a top-three position in both the NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Championships in the same year.
