In January of 2016, Bluffton University's Terrill Webb (Kenton) had yet to clear 12' in the pole vault. Qualifying for the NCAA national championship was just a dream.
In the space of the past 5 and a half months, she has become a two-time All-American, risen to a tie for 3rd at the outdoor national championship and is scaring 13 feet as a PR. Thursday's Division 3 NCAA Outdoor National Track and Field Championship was the culmination of that meteoric rise.
