Coastal Carolina’s Nelson qualifies for NCAAs in high jump again

Reggie Nelson didn’t want any part in a tiebreaker.

Thanks to a clutch jump, it wasn’t necessary.

The Coastal Carolina senior was one of 10 performers to clear 6 feet, 11 3/4 inches on the first try in the high jump competition at the NCAA East Preliminary Round at Hodges Stadium in Jacksonville, Florida, on Friday, securing a spot in the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships next month.
