COLUMBUS — St. Marys Memorial senior Kelly Heitkamp made this year’s journey to state in the pole vault a business trip. Heitkamp closed the deal with a finish five places better and a foot higher than last year’s trip.
Heitkamp cleared 10 feet, six inches and wrapped up her record-setting senior season with a seventh-place finish in the Division II girls pole vault on Saturday morning at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus.
COLUMBUS — Minster junior relay runner Paul Dues stood just outside the wrought-iron gate at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium when a fan wearing a shirt from another part of the Ohio slapped the junior on the back, congratulated him and told Dues he had run the 1600 meter relay race for Minster years ago.
