Senior Emily Brigham broke the Kansas University Relays record for pole vaulting with a height of 12’6” on Friday, April 19.

Brigham said that it was one of her goals this season to break the record.

“I came so close last year to breaking the record,” Brigham said. “I [had] to try my best to break it this year and I did.”

Brigham also said her first place medal meant a lot to her because the Relays will no longer be held at Memorial Stadium.

“[It was the last year] for the Relays to be held at the stadium,” Brigham said. “Everyone was happy I broke it, the coaches, my parents. It just made everyone happy.”

The other top placers are as follows:

Ben Carroll, boys javeline, 15th place

Maddie Estell, girls triple jump, 9th place

Emily Brigham, girls long jump, 2nd place

Emily Brigham, pole vault, 1st place
