NHS pole vaulter sets new school record

Via Nogales International

The oldest standing record in Nogales High School track and field history fell last weekend when junior decathlete Shahean Simon cleared 13 feet, 3 inches in the pole vault.

That broke the previous NHS school record of 13 feet, set by Hector Arana in 1973, according to NHS Athletic Director Eric Sowle.

Simon’s record-breaking vault came during the Lancer Invitational meet, hosted by Salpointe Catholic High School in Tucson. He finished second at the meet in the event.

In addition to setting a new NHS standard, Simon’s performance qualified him for the pole vault competition at the state championship meet, set for May 11 at Mesa Community College.
