(WDAY TV) – Chelsea Klemetson is ready for her best jump yet.

The former Spud started her collegiate career at Concordia before transferring to MSU Moorhead.

She now holds the high jump record at both schools, just setting the Dragons mark at the Masanz a couple weeks ago and heads to her third national meet tomorrow.

Chelsea Klemetson- MSU Moorhead High Jump Record Holder: “I just kinda try to focus on the things that I know I can work on like being consistent, making my jumps on the first attempt. I feel a lot more consistent and I feel more in control, I think is the biggest thing. Coming into it now I feel a lot more confident and I know I can focus on what I can do, and I can do well.”
