Neuenswander to vault today at Championships

June 10th, 2011 in News

Vera Neuenswander of Indiana University will compete in the women's pole vault today at the NCAA Division I Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Des Moines, Iowa.

Neuenswander (Jefferson City High School) is the No. 3 seed in the event, which begins at 5:25 p.m.

Neunswander is a redshirt senior after sitting out the 2009-10 season to complete her student-teaching requirement. As a junior in 2009, she was second in the Outdoor championships, clearing 14-11⁄4. She was 12th in the nation as a freshman.

Neuenswander won a Big 10 title earlier this season.

Earlier this week, Neuenswander was named to the Spring Academic All-Big Ten team with a 4.0 GPA.
