Howell won the pole vault at the Jacksonville State Quad Invitational on Saturday, clearing the bar at 2.30m. The freshman from Griffin, Ga., cleared the height on her first attempt and was the top DII finsher. She also competed in the 100 meter dash and the javelin, finishing in the top 10 of both events. Howell becomes the first Nighthawk to ever win a women’s field weekly award as the program is in its first season.
