Biography[edit]

Sharon Day originally excelled in the high jump. While at Costa Mesa High School she was the CIF California State Meet champion two years in a row, and was coached in the high jump by her father, Eugene Day. Day's mother, Yolanda Day, was an elite high jumper, and her sister, Jasmin Day, competed in the high jump for the University of Arizona.[3] While winning during her junior year, she defeated senior Chaunte Howard,[4] who has gone on to become the current American record holder.

In 2003, she won the high jump at the Pan American Junior Championships in the high jump, again defeating Howard. In 2004, she won the bronze medal at the World Junior Championships, which she qualified for by winning the USA National Junior Championships.[5]

Day attended Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo where she won the 2005 NCAA Women's Outdoor Track and Field Championship while setting the school record in the high jump. She since improved upon the record and also holds the school record in the heptathlon, which she attempted at the end of her college career, after also being a standout soccer player in the fall. Day also suffered a plant foot fracture in 2005 that required two surgeries and a year of rehabilitation. All of the heptathlon events except the high jump were taught to Day by her coach, Jack Hoyt. Day had not competed in the long jump, hurdles, shot put, javelin, 200 meters, or 800 meters prior to Spring 2007. She trained for these events after her soccer season.[6]

While winning the Sam Adams Multi-Event meet at Westmont College in Montecito, California, Day achieved the "A" standard for the 2012 Olympics.

Day has been signed with ASICS since she graduated from college in 2008, for competition in both the high jump and heptathlon. She currently trains at UCLA with her coach, Jack Hoyt, and is a volunteer assistant with the UCLA team. On September 1, 2013 she married to Dan Monroe, a Cal Poly alum and basketball coach.[7] Day is 5' 9" tall.
