Texarkana, Arkansas women take first place in Coca-Cola Relays; Pole vaulting record set in Nashville's Scrapper Stadium by Haze Farmer
Haze Farmer of Lake Hamilton made a 17'01" jump - setting a Coca-Cola Relay meet record (MR). It was not Farmer's best-ever showing, but the Lake Hamilton pole vaulting phenom made the jump look easy (see video below). Unfortunately for Arkansas, Farmer plans to attend the University of Georgia, but we wish him well (except against any University of Arkansas team member).
