Sailar was the first Spartan woman competing in the pole vault at the NCAA Track and Field Championships. She cleared 4.00m to finish tied for 17th in her final competition for the Green and White.

“Hannah has been a great competitor for us,” said MSU Director of Track & Field and Cross Country Walt Drenth. “We have counted on her so many times, and she has come through in the clutch so many times that it will be hard to not have her around. 

“To come to Nationals for the first time as a senior and perform about as well as you have performed all year, is a great way to end,” Drenth added. 

Sailar is a graduate of Lansing Catholic High School. She received her degree in environmental engineering at MSU on May 7 during ceremonies in the Breslin Center.
