LeRock cleared 6-6.25 on his first attempt after passing on the first five heights in the competition. He then missed three chances at 6-8.25.
LeRock had established his collegiate best with a 6-11 to finish fifth at the Big 12 Championships in mid May. His final OU competition during the 2014 season was at the NCAA Prelims when he cleared 6-7.5.
Another OU sophomore-to-be, Hayden McClain, will compete in the triple jump on Sunday at the US Junior Nationals. That meet, which is a qualifier for the IAAF World Junior Championships, is being held in Eugene, Ore.
McClain posted a legal collegiate best of 50-11.5 at the NCAA Prelims. That came after a wind aided 51-11.75 at the Big 12 Championships. His Big 12 mark was good for second place while his NCAA mark just barely missed qualifying for the NCAA Championships.
A top two finish and a legal mark of at least 51-2.25 will qualify McClain for the Junior World meet in Eugene July 22-27.
