Coyotes Earn Honors

Madison Mills placed third in the junior women’s pole vault to lead three Coyotes and a Coyote recruit to Junior All-American status at the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships.  All four current Coyotes who competed on Friday in Des Moines recorded top-10 finishes.

Mills vaulted 13 feet, 3½ inches, while teammate Hunter Wilkes vaulted 12-5½ to take seventh place. Mills cleared three heights before missing at 13-7¼, while Wilkes missed at 12-11½.  They are the second and third of USD’s freshmen pole vaulters to earn Junior All-America honors this year after Peter Chapman placed seventh in the junior men’s pole vault on Thursday to earn the honor.

USD pole vault recruit Emily Brigham also earned Junior All-American status by placing fourth with a height of 13-3½.  She cleared both 12-11½ and 13-3½ on her third attempt before missing at 13-7¼. Unattached vaulter Megan Clark won with a mark of 13-7¼.

Christian Nielsen earned Junior All-American honors by finishing eighth in the junior men’s 200-meter dash in 21.97 seconds. Just’N Thymes, who competed unattached, won the race with a time of 20.61.
