Kiley Kennedy '16 Breaks Pole Vault Mark, Sierra Livious '14 Adds Hammer Record to Credits

Hosting the Wesleyan Classic Sat., April 5 as the second of three home meets during the outdoor season, the Cardinals turned in some strong performances including two Wesleyan records. Those came from Kiley Kennedy '16 (photo insert lower left) and Sierra Livious '14 (main photo). Kennedy eclipsed the pole vault mark with her 10-8 3/4 leap, breaking the mark of 10-6 3/4 set in 2001. Kiley also owns the Wesleyan indoor pole vault record, set this past winter. Livious added the hammer throw mark to her list of accomplishments as she produced a 151-4 toss to win the event. The previous Cardinal standard, set in 2005, was 147-1 1/4. This is the first season Livious, the Wesleyan indoor and outdoor shot put record holder, has been throwing the hammer. Her winning shot put at the Classic was 41-1 3/4, nine inches shy of her school record. Livious also won the 100m hurdle event.
