A-J’s Lasley Sets Record In Pole Vault

Anna-Jonesboro Communty High School’s Julia Lasley had a record jump of 11-6 to win the pole vault at the Southern Illinois River-to-River Conference Mississippi and Ohio Divisions meet at Benton, Thursday, May 2.

“I knew going in she could do it,” A-J coach Michael Eudy said. “I’m not surprised that she did really well in the pole vault.”

After setting the record, Lasley attempted a vault at 11-9, but fell short.

Lasley topped former A-J student athlete Hannah Reach’s 10-0 pole vault record.

Du Quoin won the Mississippi Conference meet with a score of 217. A-J finished third at 81. Nashville was second with 100.
