Stockton freshman Keith Holland cleared 15 feet for the first time in his life to win the pole vault at this weekend’s New Jersey Athletic Conference championships at The College of New Jersey in Ewing.
Holland surpassed his PR of 14-3 1/4, which he accomplished at a meet at his home track in Galloway Township last month.
Holland completed an indoor-outdoor NJAC double. He won the indoor title at 13-11 at Ocean Breeze back in February.
Holland’s best at Central Regional in Bayville was a 14-foot clearance at last year’s Ocean County Championships at Jackson Liberty, which he won.
He’s now the No. 8 freshman in NCAA Division 3.
Holland is the first to clear 15 feet at the NJAC meet since 2013, when Joe Oliveri of Ramapo won with a 15-3 clearance.
