Freshman Cameron Abell (Erie/Prophetstown) earned All-American status in the pole vault on the first day of the NJCAA Track and Field National Championships, being held at Levelland, Texas. Battling the unfavorable elements and weather delays, the Skyhawk cleared 4.30 meters (14’1.25”) to take 8th place. His previous best for the year had been 4.50 meters (14’9”), but the weather conditions played havoc with the competitors. Only one vaulter in the field surpassed their season best performance. Abell entered the competition as the 11th place seed.
