Young and relentless – “Dateline Richmond, Va. The No. 20 Virginia men’s track and field team closed competition at the Fred Hardy Invitational on Saturday (March 31) at the Fred Hardy Track. Sophomore Sam Young (Lewes, Del.) topped the pole vault with a mark of 5.20 meters (17-feet-3/4-inches). His performance tied the facility and meet record, in addition to tying as the second-best pole vaulting mark in University of Virginia history.” The above information appeared on the UVA website March 31. Sam’s strength is a fearless, focused approach to an event that would scare the hell out of most people.
