Sam Kendricks Can Vault Higher Than You

Kendricks_medium

A year ago, Oxford's own Sam Kendricks became Ole Miss' first ever pole vault national champion when he cleared a height of 18-8.25 at the 2013 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Eugene, Ore. Sam, only a sophomore, joined a long list of former Rebels that have captured individual Track and Field Championships. That list includes many notable names, including current Olympic gold medalist and five-time long jump world champion, Brittney Reese.

Not to be outdone by any of his competitors, or even by himself, Kendricks claimed his second straight national championship in the men's pole vault yesterday evening when he once again cleared a height of 18-8.25 at the 2014 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships.

Via media relations, with the victory, Kendricks became the first Ole Miss Rebel to claim back-to-back NCAA outdoor championships since Savante' Stringfellow captured back-to-back long jump titles in 2000 and 2001. Nationally, he became the first back-to-back pole vault champion since 2007 (Tommy Skipper, Oregon).

A big congratulations to Sam for his accomplishments.

Hotty Toddy!
