Pole Vault Marks Fall at Texas Relays for Simmons abd Uhle

AUSTIN, Texas – By recording the top two pole vault clearances in Academy history, senior Cale Simmons and sophomore Joey Uhle paced several members of the Air Force track and field team today (March 29) during competition at the 86th annual Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays in Austin.

Simmons cleared an Academy-record 18’4¾” to take third in the A-section of the pole vault. In addition to breaking his own Academy standard by three inches, Simmons also accounted for the best clearance in Mountain West Conference history. The senior team captain, who also improved his own Academy Class Record, cleared the record-breaking height on his first attempt.

With a clearance of 18’1″, Uhle became the third Air Force vaulter in Academy history to surpass the 18-foot bar, while moving into second on the program’s all-time list and taking over the Sophomore Class Record. With a mark that tied for the fourth-best clearance of the day, Uhle finished ninth overall in the A-section. Adding nearly seven inches to his previous best mark, which occurred last year at Mike A. Myers Stadium, Uhle joined Simmons on the Mountain West’s all-time list, as he debuted in a tie for third.
