Senior pole vaulter Tristan Shaver has won the pole vault in each of the team’s four meets this season. He also broke a school record at the Buccaneer Track and Field Invitational, hosted by East Tennessee State.
Shaver cleared a height of 17 feet, 1/2 inches, shattering the previous record of 16 feet, 8 inches Todd Poremba set in 1998. Shaver said he set his sights on that record his freshman year.
“That was my highest jump ever,” Shaver said. “I came very close to it once my freshman year, and it took me until now to finally get over it.”
