Friday (May 7) is a very big day for junior Lady Cats pole vaulter Claire Bybee as she is scheduled to compete in the State Class 5A Track Meet at Mike A. Myers Stadium on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin.
The pole vault competition begins at 3 p.m.
According to Bybee’s Sulphur Springs Pole Vault Coach Clark Cipoletta, Bybee enters the event with the top jump in the state.
Bybee’s mark of 12-feet-9 inches was good enough to win the pole vault at the Regional Meet back on April 24 at UT-Arlington.
The magnificent result was 6 inches higher than Bybee had ever accomplished before.
