DICKINSON, N.D. - Anytime an athlete who competed in North Dakota is in the Olympics, it's a big deal for that individual, their family, their friends and their college alumni.

Dickinson State's Trevor Barry competed in the high jump finals at the Olympics games in Rio on Tuesday night.

Trevor helped the Blue Hawks win three-straight national championships in the mid-2000s.

He's from the Bahamas and he's representing his country for the second time in the Olympics.

Barry made his first two jumps, clearing 2.20 meters but when the bar was raised to 2.29 meters, Trevor missed on his three attempts.

He did not get a medal but he did finish just out of the top-10 in the world.
