#MountTop20:  Elissa Ingram Breaks Conference Record to Capture Pole Vault Crown at NEC Championships for No. 8 Moment

Elissa Ingram broke the Northeast Conference record in the pole vault to capture the No. 8 moment in the Mount's countdown of the top 20 moments of the 2012-13 season. 

At the NEC Outdoor Track and Field Championships, Ingram cleared 3.80m (12' 5.5") to take home first place in the pole vault, breaking the NEC Championship record of 3.70m set by the Mount's Mandy Jenkins in 2006. 

 A week later, Ingram continued her record-breaking year, topping the school record in the pole vault to finish fourth at the ECAC Championships to earn All-East honors.  She cleared a school-record height of 3.81m (12' 6") after matching the previous mark of 3.80m (12' 5.5") at the NEC Championships.

Ingram had a tremendous freshman year at the Mount, earning First Team All-NEC honors in the pole vault outdoors while grabbing a pair of NEC weekly honors throughout the season.  She was the NEC Rooke of the Week after a strong performance at the Colonial Relays.  Indoors, she was the NEC Field Athlete of the Week after winning the pole vault at the Navy Invitational.
