WAVERLY, Iowa – Westminster College junior pole vaulters Cassidy Shepherd and Brooke Mancuso competed at the 2016 NCAA Division III Men's & Women's Outdoor Track & Field Championships on Thursday. Wartburg College is hosting the event.
Shepherd, a Greensburg Salem graduate, finished 11th in a field of 22 vaulters with a season-best mark of 12 feet, 5.5 inches (3.80m), which she cleared on her second attempt.
