2013 East Region Masters Track & Field Championships
Hot Weather - Hot Performances at RIT

The hot and humid weather may have slowed down the distance events but it didn't seem to bother the sprinters, hurdlers, throwers, vaulters and jumpers at the 2013 USATF East Region Masters Track & Field Championships held July 6th and 7th at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in Rochester, NY. Special thanks go to timers, event staff and especially the officials who helped produce a very well run event. Team results will be posted soon. Complete individual and relay results are available here.

Jenn Suhr Vaults World Lead at New York Invitational Series

Perfect conditions bring about World leading results.

It took three tries to get the weather to cooperate.  80 degrees, just a light breeze and no humidity.  Warm ups for everyone looked good, but you could see some extra special lift from a few.  Two of the high school vaulters took advantage of the situation to set new personal records. Annika Klingenberg, an exchange student from Germany attending local Lyndonville High School, and Jenn Thill, the reigning New York State High School Champion from Lancaster High School, both vaulted higher than they ever had before. Of course warming up with two of the best Female pole vaulters in the world may have helped too.  "You pick up little tips and ideas just by watching them, and of course the encouragement doesn't hurt either."  

The night was capped off by Jenn Suhr seemingly floating over each successive height. 4.44 meters, 4.54 meters, 4.64 meters.  Heights no other competitor even got to attempt. The energy in the crowd rose each time the bar was raised.  The announcer led the crowd in a cadence clap common at most track meets where vaulting is involved, but not on golf courses.  This day though, the White Birch was not a golf course, but a place for one of the best in history to fly higher than anyone else in 2013. The regular, everyday people that came to see what the buzz was all about, were treated to something special. "I heard about jumping 16 feet, but it didn't really hit me until I saw just how high that is. I am glad I came today." 4.91 meters isn't as easy as Jenn makes it look, but then, that's why she is the #1 female pole vaulter, Indoor World Record holder, and reigning Olympic Gold Medalist.

Next up for Suhr is USA Nationals at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.  Everyone at home will be cheering you on to get that World Record Vault.

2013 USATF Niagara Association Trail Championships

Today's USATF Niagara Trail Championship was a challenging race over rugged terrain and in the hot weather. First place overall finisher, Eric Sambolec showed he meant business by leaving the competition far behind early on in the race. Second place finisher Brian Matthews admits he may have taken a wrong turn along with 1st female finisher Kiki Maletz, but he got back on track and finished strong. Tony Machulkis, while fresh off a 30 mile USATF Ultra Series race in Highland Forest last weekend, took a spill out on the course and came in 3rd, bloodied but still smiling. Kiki Maletz sailed to a strong 1st place finish, even though she came across the finish with some cuts and bruises as well. USATF Niagara athletes finished top 4 in the race of 53 competitors. Kim Goerlich finished 2nd in her first trail race of the season and Jim Glinsky raced well to finish as the first master runner.


1st: Eric Sambolec, Kiki Maletz   
2nd: Brian Matthews, Kim Goerlich
3rd: Tony Machulskis
1st Master: Jim Glinsky
