MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Sophomore Madelin Gardner of the West Virginia University track and field team claimed the women’s pole vault title on Saturday, at the Mason Spring Invitational in Fairfax, Virginia, at George Mason Stadium.
“Today was a strong day for the team,” said coach Sean Cleary. “We had highlights spanning over a many event areas. Danique (Bryan) and Maddie continue to lead the way. Maddie handled the windy conditions very well as she attempted her lifetime best. Bria (Welker) and Candace (Jones) showed that they are rounding into to top form as they continue running at or very near their lifetime best marks. We had a strong day today, but none the less have better moments to both train and look forward to.”
