She then cleared an indoor lifetime-best of 5-9.75 in the high jump for the second-best mark of the day (941 pts.). In the shot put, Krais posted a mark of 34-11.75 (6th overall, 573 pts.). Krais was fourth in the long jump with a mark of 18-1.75 (709 pts.). She capped off the day with a lifetime-best run in the 800m (2:16.34) for 874 points.

Also on Friday in Seattle, senior Danielle Watson finished third in the long jump with a career-best and improved NCAA provisional mark of 20-9.

In the 5000m, junior Kelcie Wiemann finished 16th overall with a lifetime-best of 17.10.03.
