FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – For 22 years, current Baylor associate women’s head coach Stacey Bowers-Smith was in a class by herself as Baylor track & field’s only individual national champion.

Already the collegiate record holder, Baylor junior pole vaulter KC Lightfoot gave Baylor three individual champions at an NCAA meet for the first time in program history. Staying alive by clearing the 5.80-meter bar (19-0 ¼) on his final attempt, Lightfoot went on to win his first NCAA title with a vault of 19-5 ½ that broke the meet and facility records at the University of Arkansas’ Randal Tyson Track Center.
