Boys Varsity Track · South signs with SE Missouri

Muscle Shoals senior Nick South, the state’s top ranked pole vaulter, signed a national letter of intent Tuesday with Southeast Missouri.

South won his second straight Class 6A pole vault title last weekend at the AHSAA State Track and Field Championships in Gulf Shores with a height of 15 feet, 7 inches. He also holds the top pole vault mark in the state this season with a 15-8.

An accomplished hurdler as well, South – who competes in the summer for the North Alabama Trackers – was third in the 110 hurdles (14.97) at the state meet last weekend and second in the 300 hurdles (39.88).

The Redhawks, a Division I team, compete in the Ohio Valley Conference.South1
