INDOOR COLLEGE ATHLETICS
Jackson Tuomey’s first season in college pole vaulting could hardly go much better, as on Monday he set a personal best, school record and competitive record at the Northeast Conference championships in New York.
The Saint Francis freshman and Brunswick High graduate eclipsed those marks and won the title by clearing the bar at 5.0 meters (16 feet, 4 inches). The winning height eclipsed the school record he set earlier this season at the Gulden Invitational.
Tuomey beat Mount St. Mary’s Carter Nave, who came in second (4.9).
