Slippery Rock’s Courtney McQuaide won the pole vault at the SRU open last week, as well as posted a NCAA provisional mark.
The freshman's clearance of 12' 4" (3.76m) is the best in the PSAC during the outdoor season and is tied for fourth in Division II.
McQuaide defeated PSAC indoor champion and teammate Kaitlyn Clark at the meet; Clark and McQuaide are the only pole vaulters in the PSAC with clearances better than 11' 6".
The Greensburg Salem graduate earned PSAC West Field Athlete of the Week for her performance.
