HV pole vaulter Holtsclaw takes third at BlueCross Spring Fling


MURFREESBORO — Seeded sixth in a field of eight didn’t stop Happy Valley’s Emily Holtsclaw from pulling off one of the day’s best performance in the TSSAA A/AA state track and field meet held at Middle Tennessee State University on Thursday.
“Holtsclaw broke the school record with a 9-0 performance that placed her on the podium with a third-place finish during the awards ceremony afterward.
Her personal best ever in the pole vault earned her a medal and all-state honors in front of a large crowd.
Holtsclaw has been pole vaulting for only two years, but appears to have caught on very quickly. She wanted some redemption after a not-so-good performance at CAK in the sectional last week.
