Liberty graduate Carson Waters placed an impressive sixth in the men’s pole vault with an 18-3 clearance,Saturday at the USATF Outdoor Championships at Drake Stadium.

Making his USATF Outdoor Championships debut, Waters, a 2018 Liberty alum, made clutch third-attempt clearances at each of his first two heights (17-11 and 18-3).
