Cummings Breaks Record – Again

ORONO — Ben Cummings continued his record-setting season by eclipsing his former school pole vault record of with a height of 13 feet, 6 inches at an Eastern Maine Indoor track League (EMITL) meet at the University of Maine at Orono fieldhouse on Friday.

“His assault on the record book continues. His old record was 13 feet, 2 inches,” head coach Ian Braun said. “The league record is 14 feet. He made three attempts at that but didn’t make it.”

This was a meet in which the top five teams in EMITL from last year competed, so some of the best talents in the region were there to compete. “I told the team that points would be at a premium. It was a championship type atmosphere as far as some of the performances we saw on Friday night,” Coach Braun said. “It was a very good meet for us. We were very happy with some of our performances. Of course we always want to do better but overall we were pleased.”

There were many season-best performances at the meet.
