CONGRATULATIONS to MEGAN CLARK(Duke University) for soaring to the gold on Thursday at the 120th PENN RELAY CARNIVAL in Franklin Field. This senior Duke Ambassador of Sport put on a real show in brutal rainy/windy and cold conditions on the newly surfaced Track complex in the Championship of America Pole Vault event. Coach Shawn Wilbourn moved her in to her 6 step approach on this bizarre day and she flew to the gold watch win at 13′ 9.5″ and called it a day. Team mate Madison Heath placed second at 13′ 5.5″ for the Blue Devil sweep. Megan …having step problems in her first 3 years at Penn…never gave up her faith and drive…and after 4 dedicated years of training … realized her moment. NEVER GIVE UP wins again!!!!!
