TRACK & FIELD: St. Marys' Heitkamp headed to state in pole vault
LEXINGTON — Kelly Heitkamp, a St. Marys Memorial junior, qualified for the state tournament in the girls pole vault with a third-place finish at the Division II regional meet at Lexington on Saturday.
Heitkamp cleared nine feet, six inches — one of seven vaulters to hit that mark. Heitkamp won the tiebreaker (the vaulters' second-best vaults are compared) to tie for third with Liberty-Benton's Alex Johnson.
Heitkamp will compete at state at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus on Saturday, June 2 at 9 a.m.
