Mount St. Mary’s freshman Elissa Ingram has been named the Northeast Conference Women’s Indoor Track Field Athlete of the Week. Ingram won the pole vault at the Navy Invitational this past Saturday.
Ingram took home first place in the pole vault at Navy with a leap of 3.70m (12′ 1.5″). Her mark is the top spot on this year’s NEC performance list, and is third all-time at the Mount behind Mandy Jenkins (3.76m, 12′ 4″) and Allison Vanek (3.75m, 12′ 3.5″).
She is the first Mountaineer to earn NEC Field Athlete of the Week honors since Vanek did in January of 2011.
The Mount is back in action this Saturday at the Bucknell Gulden Invitational.
