Luke Rochester named All-Southeast Region by USTFCCCA

NEW ORLEANS – The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) announced Monday that Lees-McRae's Luke Rochester earned a spot on the All-Southeast Region Indoor Team in the pole vault.

The top-5 individuals in each event from each region earned All-Region distinction, in addition to each of the members of the regions' top-3 relay teams. The regions used for this award – Atlantic, Central, East, Midwest, South, South Central, Southeast and West – match those used during the cross country season.

Rochester had a breakout showing for the Bobcats during the indoor season notching a trio of top three finishes during the indoor campaign. The highlight for Rochester was finishing second in the pole vault at the league championship meet earlier this month with a career-best mark of 4.27m.

Rochester and the rest of the Bobcats will return to action for the outdoor season March 16-17 when they compete in the 49er Classic in Charlotte.
