Virginia’s Bridget Guy breaks pole vault record … again
Bridget Guy just keeps raising the bar at Virginia.
The Hempfield graduate and redshirt senior has broken the school pole vault record three straight weeks, the latest instance coming over the weekend at the Tiger Paw Invitational in Clemson, S.C.
Guy cleared 14 feet, 4.5 inches on her first try at the meet, a mark that ties her for seventh best in the nation.
She earned ACC Field Performer of the Week for her efforts.
Guy is building towards the ACC Championships, which will be held in Blacksburg, Va. on Feb. 21-23.
