Track and Field

Ken Mullings made history over the weekend.

The record-setting decathlete set a national record in the men’s indoor pole vaults, jumping 5.06 meters at the Illinois Open Meet on the University of Illinois campus.

The previous record was 4.95 meters, set by Brent Vanderpool in 1988, almost a decade before Mullings was born. 

Mullings ran in the event unattached. He also won the 60-meter hurdles and came 6th in the shot put. 

Soccer Qualification

Mingoes Men’s Soccer Head Coach Alex Thompson recently completed his B-license qualifications from USA soccer. 

Thompson is one of only two coaches in the country with such a qualification, which took months to complete.
