Record-setting form by Cunningham and Baxter

Florida State’s Trey Cunningham and Virginia Tech women’s pole vaulter Rachel Baxter were in a record-setting form on Friday. Cunningham extended his fruitful performances this season with a blistering time of 7.40 in the heats of the men’s 60m hurdles to shatter his own ACC overall and meet record.

His time now ranks him second all-time behind the NCAA record of 7.35, set by Florida’s Grant Holloway at the 2019 NCAA Indoor Championships.

Baxter, meanwhile, captured the women’s pole vault title on her way to becoming just the fifth woman in ACC history to claim an indoor gold medal four years in a row. She sealed the deal with a record-setting clearance of 4.61m (15’1.5”), which improved the previous ACC mark of 4.60m, set by Duke’s Megan Clark in 2016.
