BATON ROUGE — The tradition is alive and well.
Lafayette High’s Johanna Duplantis joined the family’s remarkable legacy of state champions Saturday, winning a stirring duel with Heather Abadie of St. Michael in the Division I girls pole vault at the LHSAA State Indoor Meet.
Duplantis won in a jump-off after both vaulters cleared 11-11.75.
She joins older brothers Andreas and Mondo on top of the victory stand at Maddox Field House. Andreas went on to shine at LSU, as their father Greg did before him, while Mondo is a current freshman with the Tigers and a world junior record holder in the event.
