Former Con Ed winner Matt Fay '15 breaks 17-year mark at Bucknell

Former Iona Preparatory pole vaulter and Con Edison award winner Matthew Fay US'15, who at one point in his Gael career was ranked No. 2 in all of New York, recently shattered a 17-year-old record at Bucknell University.

Fay broke the program record in the pole vault on April 22 as the Bucknell men’s track and field team won the team title at the Bucknell Team Challenge at Christy Mathewson-Memorial Stadium. The Bison scored 224.5 points to finish in first-place among eight teams.

Fay, who entered with a personal-best of 16-2 ¾, won the event with a mark of 16-9 ¼, smashing the previous best of 16-3 recorded by Dave Pomfret in 2000.

Congratulations to our record-breaking Gael!
