Wright Takes Ninth In NCAA Pole Vault

March 12, 2011

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – At her first NCAA Indoor Championship, senior Joanna Wright finished in a tie for ninth place in the pole vault at the Gilliam Indoor Track Stadium in College Station, Texas.

Wright finished the event with a height of 4.10 meters (13-5.25), shy of her season best, and school record height of 4.30 meters (14-1.25) recorded at the Rod McCravy Invitational on January 28.

After her performance, Wright was tabbed to the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association All-American Second Team.

Tina Sutej of Arkansas, the national leader entering the NCAA Championships, won the event with a mark of 4.45 meters (14-7.25).

Wright, and the rest of the Yellow Jackets, will be back in action on March 18 at the George C. Griffin Track and Field Facility when they begin their outdoor season hosting the Georgia Intercollegiate Invitational.
