EAST PEORIA - Vandalia eighth-grader Emma Meyer placed fourth in the pole vault state finals on Saturday, clearing a school record 9 feet, 9 inches.
Vaulting at the Illinois Elementary School Association state finals at the EastSide Centre, Meyer was one of four vaulters to make it to 9-9, but she was unable to get over 10 feet.
But with a school record and a top-five finish, Meyer said she was still pleased with her day.
