AREA TRACK AND FIELD: Pioneers fail to qualify for state meet


COLLEGEVILLE — Cassie Stangl cleared 9-2 in the pole vault, tying the Pierz school record, which was good for a sixth-place tie in the Section 5-1A meet at St. John’s University Wednesday.

However, for the first time in many years, according to Pioneers coach Craig Johnshoy, no boy or girl from Pierz will advance to the state 1A meet.

The top two individuals and top two relay teams in each event advance in addition to those qualifying by standard.
