Webb takes second at Highland Games with personal best

NEWLAND, N.C. --- Rising Lees-McRae College junior Evan Webb (Salisbury, N.C.) kicked his offseason training into high gear this past weekend, competing in the pole vault competition at the annual Highland Games on Grandfather Mountain on Saturday.

Webb has enjoyed a strong two-year career at Lees-McRae since his arrival on campus in the fall of 2010, posting 11 top-five finishes during that span, including a top-of-the-podium performance at the 2011 Conference Carolinas Championships. The Salisbury, N.C. native posted perhaps his best performance to date at the Highland Games, finishing second with a vault of 4.60 meters, which is a personal best for Webb in outdoor competition.
