The Vanderbilt Commodores track program jumped into the top-ten in the South Region in the US Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches’ Association, thank in large part due to their improvement in the pole vault event.
Meagan Martin was ranked fourth in the South Region by way of her performance in the pole vault, a 12-11.5 height that set both a new personal and school record in the event. She was one of five Vanderbilt teammates to earn a top-8 ranking, as Liz Anderson came in 7th in the 3K with a time of 9:24.04, Brionne Williams ranked 7th with a high jump of 5-10.5, and the distance medley team of Jordan White, Erin Edmond, Kristen Findley and Anderson came in fourth with a time of 11:19.74.
Several of the Commodores will be attending a “Last Chance” meet this weekend, as Williams and Ellie Tidman compete in the high jump and Martin in the pole vault at the Alabama High Tide Qualifier in Birmingham on Saturday for an opportunity to qualify for the NCAA Indoor Nationals.
