YORKSHIRE — With a new pole in front of her and a bout with mono behind her, the only place for Jenn Thill to go was up.
And that’s exactly where she went, clearing 12 feet, 3 inches to win the Division I pole vault at Saturday’s Section VI Track and Field Championships at Pioneer.
The effort added two inches to her Western New York lead and highlighted a huge day for Lancaster’s girls. The two-day event was also a qualifier for next weekend’s New York State Championships in Middletown.
After easily clearing 12-3, Thill moved up to 13 feet, where she bowed out after three attempts.
“There was a nice tail wind so I had to move my marks back a little bit on the runway,” said Thill, who has signed with UB. “I felt really good during the whole meet, I really didn’t lose any energy.”
