Icing her left shin down between jumps to alleviate shin splint pains, Tollefson nevertheless reached the height of 5-06 on her final attempt, to push Litchfield's Natalie Devine to 5-07 for the state high jump championship. Neither jumper made the height, but Devine was awarded the title because of the criteria of missing the least jumps. But finishing one spot out of a state title was very satisfying to Tollefson.
