No record for Haze Farmer — the timing wasn’t right, the calendar reading March instead of May — but not another no-height either.
Arkansas’ premier high school pole vaulter is back on track after a winning effort of 17 feet, 2 inches in the Lakeside Ram Relays Thursday at Austin Field. Stepping up to 17-7, Farmer tried three times to break Lake Hamilton’s school record of 17-6 1/2 set by Nick Johnson in 2017.
“I got a little tired. I took a lot of jumps today,” Farmer said. “But I still should have made it.”
Lake Hamilton won the girls’ pole vault with senior Edie Murray clearing 12 feet and teammate Mahayla Swayze second at 10-0. An Arkansas signee, Murray won her second Meet of Champions title last year at 13-1 after setting a personal record of 13-3 1/4 in the 6A meet.
