Emily Clay Sets All-Time Girls Pole Vault Record

EAST PEORIA - Emily Clay of Bloomington Cornerstone Academy set the IESA girls pole vault all-time record clearing 10-3 to win the eighth grade girls event before a crowd of nearly 5,000 at the 2007 Class A State Final Track and Field Saturday at the EastSide Centre.

Clay put on a show that brought the crowd to its feet as she cleared 10-3 to surpass the previous all-time mark of 10-0 set by Megan Murphy of Casey-Westfield in 2004. The pole vault win was Clay's third. She won the seventh grade girls at 7-11 as a sixth grader, then took the seventh grade win at 9-4 last year.

The eighth grade girls title went to Kewanee Wethersfield with 50 points. The eight grade boys champion was Carthage with 48 points.

Isaac Morckel of Wood River Lewis & Clark was a double winner in the seventh grade boys meet. He won the 100-meter dash in :12.24 and took the 200-meter dash in :24.94.

In the eighth grade boys meet, Carthage got event wins from Cody Carson in the 800-meter run with a time of 2:07.54, from Ser Whitaker in the 110-meter high hurdles in :15.91, and the 4 x 400-meter relay in 3:49.36.

In seventh grade girls, Johanna Haywood of Altamont set the 7A record in the 200-meter dash in :26.85.

In eighth grade girls, Kewanee Wethersfield set the 8A mark of 4:22.19 in the 4 x 400-meter relay in the last heat of the day, bettering the record of 4:22.36 set by Tremont in the previous heat.
