Kantola Jumps Season-Best 13-5.25 In 'A' Pole Vault At Texas Relays

April 5, 2008

Senior Ingrid Kantola upped her season-best mark in the pole vault to 13-5.25 on Saturday as she competed in the 'A' section of the vault at the Texas Relays in Austin. Kantola, who won the 'B' section on Friday, was invited into the top section and was the Bruins' top finisher as she placed fourth with her season-best clearance.

Freshman Tori Anthony finished tied for sixth with a mark of 12-7.50, while former Bruin and NCAA champion Chelsea Johnson won the event with a clearance of 14-7.25.

Today's pole vault competition marks the final event for the Bruin women at the Texas Relays. The vaulters will return to rejoin the team next weekend as UCLA hosts the Rafer Johnson/Jackie Joyner Kersee Invitational April 10-12.
