The El Dorado Springs track team got the opportunity to get their two pole vaulters, Ethan Parshall and Brayden Housh, into the Kansas University Relays Friday, April 15, in Lawrence, Kansas. They both qualified, despite the stringent standards, and they both made use of the possibility.
From the get-go, they were both flying high. Housh ended up matching his school record-setting height of 13’ 8” to take fifth. He did have a pretty good attempt at 14’ 2” but couldn't get the timing down. Parshall ended up finishing with a height of 13’ 2” for ninth place, although his second attempt at 13’ 8” was about a foot over the bar, but he came down on it.
These two are really starting to look pretty good as we start wrapping up the regular season and moving into the post season.
