Former Fort Payne track and field standouts continue to do well at the college level. Malik Turner ( UAH) finished first at the UAB-Vulcan Invitational on Saturday. Patrick Sherrill (University of Montevallo) set personal records in the 400 dash finishing 10th with a .51 run and in the triple jump with a jump of 42’6”.
Former Fort Payne High School pole vault champion, Lennon Isben, wasted little time in making her mark in the Jacksonville State University track and field record book. On Saturday in only her second college meet at the UAB-Vulcan Invitational at the Crossplex, Isben finished 1st in the event while setting a new JSU indoor pole vault record.
Her jump of 12’ 1.5” eclipsed the old record of 12’ set back in 2010. Lennon will compete next weekend for the Gamecocks in Nashville at the Vanderbilt Invitational Track and Field Meet.
