Northbrook, Ill./New Trier High School
Elizabeth Boyle bettered her own school record in the pole vault when she cleared a personal-best and NCAA regional-qualifying 13-6 (4.12m) to win the event last Saturday at the Len Paddock Invitational. After clearing 13-3 for a new Ferry Field record, Boyle took to the runway and notched a mark of 13-6 on her first attempt, bettering her old school record by 2 1/2 inches. The Wolverine sophomore currently sits ninth in the nation with the mark of 13-6.
