VALDESE — One of the most successful high school athletes in Burke County has nailed down her college destination.

Two-time state-champion pole vaulter Leanna Seagraves, a Draughn senior, will continue her track and field career at Montreat College in the North Carolina mountains.

As a junior, Seagraves was girls field events athlete of the year for the Northwestern Foothills 2A Conference. She swept the pole vault (9’6”), long jump (16’5½”) and triple jump (30’8”) in the NWFAC, later winning the regional title in pole vault and finishing second in the state.
