(Albany, GA) — Senior Lady Brave Caitlin Newell made her mark and then some at the GHSA 2015 Class AA State Track Meet in Albany Thursday where she earned a place on the medal platform by finishing in seventh place in the Pole Vault.

Caitlin set a new personal best mark at 9-feet in her third consecutive appearance at the state meet in this event.

She qualified for state by finishing in fifth place at the state sectionals held in Fitzgerald last weekend with a mark of 8-feet and 6-inches.

Erica Emory also competed at the state meet finishing in ninth place in the high jump with a 5-foot leap. Erica toughed it out in her final jumps after rolling her ankle on one of her earlier attempts.

The injury forced her to miss the 100 Meter Dash which she had also qualified for during the sectionals.

Holly Moreland finished in 16th place at state in the 1600 Meter Run after qualifying by finishing in seventh place at sectionals.

The other 12 Heard County athletes that qualified for the sectionals in Fitzgerald did not compete due to the meet conflicting with the school prom.
