Indiana's Drouin first five-time NCAA high jump champ

History-making Indiana high jumper Derek Drouin put his name in the NCAA record books Friday at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. Drouin cleared 2.34m (7-8) to claim the NCAA high jump crown and became the first five-time champion in the event.

The senior missed on his first attempt at 2.31m (7-7), falling behind two-time defending champion Erik Kynard of Kansas State and passed to the next height, where he cleared on his second and final attempt. Three misses by Kynard gave Drouin the title. Drouin took three jumps at 2.39m (7-10), which would have broken the all-time collegiate record, missing on all three.

The result is a flip of the 2012 championships, when Kynard won with a jump of 2.34m (7-8) and Drouin took second at 2.31m (7-7).
