Hixson Takes First in Pole Vault at NACAC Championships

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica – Former Grand Valley State track & field star Kristen Hixson took first place in the women’s pole vault at the 2015 NACAC Senior Championships.

Hixson, a three-time outdoor national champion and seven-time indoor and outdoor All-American for the Lakers, topped the competitors in the event by clearing the bar at 4.50 meters. She bested runner up Kelsie Ahbe of Canada by .10 meters and fellow American Katie Nageotte by .20 meters.

Hixson’s mark at the NACAC Senior Championships matches the facility record she set at the 2014 NCAA Division II Outdoor National Championships, hosted by Grand Valley State., as well as the GVSU outdoor record she set at the same event.
