Nyalaam Jok graduated Annandale High School last year with an impressive resume that included being a 3x Class A State Champion in the high jump, a 1x State Champion in the long jump, going undefeated her senior season in the high jump, tying the state record for the high jump and winning a plethora of sections and conference titles.
After graduating she has gone on to stay home to compete for the University of Minnesota. Now there as a true freshman, she is already breaking records as a Gopher.
