Chaigneau Breaks 32-Year-Old Harding Pole Vault Record

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Harding sophomore Dorian Chaigneau broke a 32-year-old Harding record in the indoor pole vault Saturday at the Arkansas Invitational at the Randal Tyson Track Center on the campus of the University of Arkansas.

Chaigneau, a native of Fontenay-le-Comte, France, won the event by clearing 5.10 meters (16 feet, 8.75 inches), breaking the old mark of 16 feet, 6 inches by Harding Hall of Famer Jimmy Sloan in 1989. It was the highest clearance by a Division II athlete this season by almost three inches.
