COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Ethan Poston placed tied for 21st nationally in the high jump at the 2021 NCAA Division I West Regional.

Poston cleared 6 feet, 11 inches (2.11m). He also cleared the first two heights of 6-7 and 6-9. He was eliminated after three misses at 7-1.

"Ethan had a great day jumping," said SIUE Head Coach Marcus Evans. "He has been consistent over 6-11 all year and had his best attempt all year on a height over 7-0. He got great experience he wants to use next year when he plans to come back."
Poston had a good experience at E.B. Cushin Stadium.
"Ethan qualifying shows where our program is headed," noted Evans. "We finished the year with a lot of athletes on the cusp of making the West Preliminary. We hope those athletes seeing Ethan qualify makes our whole team hungry for the success our staff came here to foster."
