Her victory at the NCAA championship marks a significant milestone in her career, making her the first NCAA outdoor champion since Ashley Spencer, who won the 400m championship in both 2012 and 2013.

This accomplishment highlights Yeboah’s dedication and relentless pursuit of excellence in high jump. Such a performance on a grand stage like the NCAA championship boosts her confidence and sets a high benchmark for her future competitions, especially the upcoming Paris Olympics.

This achievement not only brings pride to the team but also inspires current and future athletes to strive for greatness and aim for the highest levels of competition.
