FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Texas A&M sophomore Audie Wyatt won the Southeastern Conference indoor title in the pole vault and broke the school record by clearing 18 feet, 1 inch on Friday at the Randal Tyson Track Complex.
Wyatt led A&M’s assault on the men’s pole vault event with Chase Wolfle taking second at 17’9.75, Jacob Wooten fourth (17’4.5) and Carl Johansson tying for eighth (16’4.75). The Aggie quartet scored 23.33 points and helped A&M settle into second place with 34.83 points behind Arkansas’s leading 42. Ole Miss is third at 27.5.
“We came in here expecting to get more than the 15 we scored at SEC Indoors last season,” Wyatt said. “If we got above 20 that would be amazing. We accomplished that goal, and it was a great day for the Aggie vaulters.”
Georgia leads the women’s team standings with 25 points followed by Arkansas (22) and Tennessee (18). A&M is 11th with seven points.
The meet will wrap up Saturday with 12 of 17 events still remaining on the men’s side and 13 of 17 on the women’s.
