Junior pole vaulter Emily Kurtz set a new school record during the Dawson County track and field team's meet on Tuesday, March 29. She cleared a height of 8 feet 7 inches to set the mark. 

"Emily is an extremely dedicated athlete that works to be the best," head coach Arron Haynes said. "She is a prime example of hard work paying off [and] will not be satisfied staying at 8-7."
