Morris wins women’s pole vault at Drake Relays

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Sandi Morris won the women’s pole vault Friday night at the Drake Relays, her first competition in eight months after offseason surgery on her left ankle.

Morris, the silver medalist at the 2016 Rio Olympics, cleared 15 feet, 7 1/4 inches to join Kellie Suttle (1998-2001) as the only four-time winner in the event at the meet.

Former Olympic gold medalist Jenn Suhr was second at 15-3 1/2.
