Karlie Place wins with new poles; Sammie Houston sees increased role

The Gophers coaching staff thought senior Karlie Place was improving, so they ordered bigger poles for her to exceed past performances. There was one problem, however: the poles arrived the day before Saturday's meet, the Parents Day Invite, and Place did not have time to practice with them before she competed. She still managed to finish first on the pole vault with a jump of 13 feet, 11.75 inches. She fell just short of a career best, as Minnesota claimed five event titles over the weekend.
