Middle Township High School senior Gary Nagle broke a 46-year-old program track record Wednesday.
Nagle broke Middle's pole vault record in a meet with Buena Regional, leaping to a height of 12 feet, 9.25 inches. He broke the previous record by a quarter of an inch, set by W. Bevis in 1972.
Middle lost its meet with Buena 88-52.
Nagle, a three-sport athlete, is enjoying a tremendous senior year in athletics. He was a starting tight end and linebacker on the football team. He was also a district champion in wrestling and holds the program's all-time wins record.
