Freshman Lilian Turban had a great start to her season, where she took first in the high jump in her debut at the Beach Opener. She cleared 5’10”, which stood as the top mark in the NCAA for two weeks. About a month later, she took first again in the high jump with the same mark. She earned two Field Athlete of the Week honors from the Big West Conference for her performances. When it came to conference championships.
