Pole vaulters will be back Saturday
Organizers postpone Jenn Suhr event due to rain
LYNDONVILLE – The community will have to wait another day to see Jenn Suhr and other leading pole vaulters compete at the White Birch Golf Course.
Suhr and five other vaulters competed at the White Birch last Friday. They were scheduled to be in action again today at 5:30 p.m. The threat of rain prompted organizers to push the event to 2 p.m. Saturday.
Suhr cleared 15 feet, 7 inches last Friday, the same height she topped to win a gold medal last year in London.
Janice Keppler of Medina also is competing in the event. She is currently the fourth-ranked pole vaulter in the country.
The second fairway at the golf course is being used for the event. Other competitors include: Heather Hamilton, the top-ranked vaulter in Canada; Claire Dishong of Brockport and Cornell University; Linda Hadfield of Utica and Tennessee University; and Erin Champion of Tennessee University.
The White Birch is located at 1515 North Lyndonville Rd.
