MINNEAPOLIS – Senior Karlie Place won the pole vault with the best mark in the Big Ten Conference so far this season, and Sofie Albrechtsen placed third in the pentathlon as the Golden Gopher women’s track & field team hosted day one of this weekend’s Jack Johnson Classic Friday at the University of Minnesota Fieldhouse.

Place cleared 4.28m (14-00.50) to win pole vault, marking her fourth PR performance in as many meets as a Gopher. She moved into third among all-time Gopher pole vaulters and improved on her previous indoor career best of 4.00m (13-01.50), set just last weekend at the Larry Wieczorek Invitational. Her performance also bested her outdoor PR of 4.06m (13-03.75) set during the 2016 season.
