She qualified for the Pan-Am Games by finishing fourth, on misses, at the U.S. Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Des Moines, Iowa. She cleared 5-8 3/4 on her first attempt, but took fourth based on two misses at 5-7 earlier in the competition.
The Pan-Am Games open to athletes age 16 to 19 as of December 31, 2013.
