Nogales standout jumper Dominique Acosta signed to compete for Pima. Acosta was one of three senior high jumpers from Arizona to achieve a qualifying mark for the state championships and the only one from Division II when she jumped 5-feet-6 inches at a home meet on March 4.
Acosta’s personal high jump record is 5-7.
“We’re happy to add one of the best high jumpers,” Pima coach Chad Harrison said in a release. “Dominique follows a solid lineage of Pima Community College high jumpers. She was a two-sport superstar in high school from basketball and track and field.”
