It was Senior Weekend for the Commodores at their Music City Challenge, and Kristen Denk made the most of it with a victory in the Pole Vault.
Denk, a Senior Indoor (and Junior Outdoor), won with a vault of 4.23m. She came in at 4.03 and took two jumps for her first two progressions. At 4.23m, she scratched on her first attempt and then cleared on her second. She defeated vaulters from Michigan St, Mississippi St, Michigan, Ole Miss, and Cincinnati, among others in the 30+ vaulter field.
Junior Margaret Ollinger continued her solid indoor campaign by vaulting 4.03m cracking the 13’ barrier again. She is knocking on the door for more personal records and peaking at the right time in the Indoor season.
