Arthur Guarantees National Appearance with Height at Lenoir-Rhyne PoweSox Invitational

LENOIR, N.C. - Jon Arthur cleared a height of 5.05 meters, 16'08", to win the Lenoir-Rhyne PoweSox Invitational's pole vault and to automatically qualify him for NCAA Division II Track and Field Meet at Angelo State University in Texas.

Arthur's height also placed him first in the Conference Carolinas. Arthur had an impressive indoor season and just missed qualifying for the indoor championship by finishing a few places off the list, but his height guarantees him a trip to the outdoor championship meet.
