Amanda Culver places 7th in Pole Vault

It was an amazing week-end for Missouri State Track and Field Pole Vaulters competing in Jefferson City, Missouri, especially for two Tarkio teenagers. East Atchison freshman athlete Gage McAdams, competing in his ever state com-petition, vaulted his way to 1st place with a height of 13’6” in the Class 1 event. This height was not only a personal best for McAdams, but also broke the Tarkio High School boys’ pole vault record held for 45 years by Brad Nixon (his record of 13’ was set in 1971). Amanda Culver placed 7th overall in the Class 1 event with a pole vault of 8’9”. Both McAdams and Culver received medals for their efforts
