Eagles show their strength in own Beaufort Track Classic

Eagles show their strength in own Beaufort Track Classic

Jackie Barnes sat on the ground under a small blue tent and squeezed a plastic water bottle, the crackling replacing the silence as she prepared for another pole vault attempt.

Barnes, a Beaufort High School sophomore, wanted to clear 13 feet and reclaim the national record for her grade level, which had moved to 12 feet, 10 inches since she first cleared 12-9 in Jacksonville, Fla., in March.

H.S. TRACK: Holy Cross pole vaulters Ware and Marsh are two of a kind

Ultimately, they are two of a kind.

They’re two people with different personalities and similar athletic abilities, who have developed a lifelong friendship through track and field.

Tom Ware, a towering junior who combines his size, strength and speed, is reserved. He is a quiet competitor with a burning desire for success.

Matt Marsh, a scrappy sophomore, is outgoing. He, too, strives to be the…
