Franklin two-time All-American at NMU

Bailey Franklin of River Falls finished third in the high jump at the 2012 NCAA Division II Indoor Track and Field Championships March 10 in Mankato, Minn. to earn All-America honors for the second straight year.

Franklin, a senior at Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Mich., cleared 5-feet, 8.75 inches to become an All-American for the second year in a row. She was an All-American in the triple jump at last years' national championships.

Franklin helped Northern Michigan score 12 team points at this year's national meet for a 14th place finish, the highest in school history.
