Girls Weekend Conference Track Roundup


TROY — Troy pole vaulters Alyssa Kern and Lauren Brooks had the opportunity to extend Troy’s conference track title streak to 13 years Friday.

And they did not disappoint.

The MVL meet was held Thursday, but the pole vault was postponed to Friday.

When the pole vault began, Tippecanoe led the girls competition with 152 points and Troy had 143.5.

Kern took second in the event, clearing 10-0 and Brooks took fourth, clearing 8-6.

That was enough to give Troy the title with 156.5 points, while Tipp was second with 155 points.

Piqua finished ninth.


It was a complete team effort for the Trojans as they got some big contributions in a number of events.

“Every single point mattered in what has been the closest finish in our 13 year run,” Troy girls coach Kurt Snider said. “I am so proud of the fight and determination of our girls. They fought to the very end and supported each other. Tippecanoe has a strong team and we knew it would be a very close finish between our teams.

“Coach Clendening has done a tremendous job of building a program in his first 2 years and I know they will continue to be a great threat to us over the years. I just can’t say enough about every contribution made from the girls. Every place in every event mattered and this was truly a team victory. Extremely proud of our coaching staff and the work they have put in to help our young ladies be in a position to win the title.”
