UK Track and Field Signs State?s Top Pole Vaulter
"We are thrilled to have Mary in our program,? said head coach Don Weber. ?Steve Thomas, our field events coach, and I believe she has tremendous potential and will develop into a very competitive vaulter in the Southeastern Conference."
This past year Durham recorded the best pole vault mark in the Commonwealth at 12-0, while winning the Daviess County Invitational on May 17. As a junior she finished second at the Kentucky State High School Track & Field Meet with a jump of 10-6 and should have the opportunity to better that finish at this year?s state meet which will take place June 3-4 at the Shively Track on the University of Kentucky campus.
Durham has also excelled in the classroom as she was selected as a First Corbin Financial Corporation/KHSAA Sportsmanship recognition award winner for 2004-2005.
