Baton Rouge, La. – Mondo Duplantis made his fourth appearance on The Bowerman Watch List on Thursday afternoon. Duplantis stayed on the list thanks to his first-ever NCAA title last weekend at the NCAA Championships in Birmingham, Alabama.
Duplantis cleared 19’ 1.50” at the NCAA meet to earn 10 points for LSU. His 10 points contributed to LSU’s team total of 31 that helped the Tigers to a third-place finish, the best for the men at the NCAA indoor meet since 2006. He became only the second LSU men’s pole vaulter to win an NCAA indoor title; he joined Russ Buller (2000) on that list.
