The Kent Taylor Invite on Sunday at the Eddie Smith Field House in Chapel Hill was the final indoor meet of the regular season for the North Carolina track and field team prior to the start of the ACC Championships.
Paul Haley is no stranger to coming out on top. Sunday proved no different, as the redshirt junior from Ellicott City, Md., placed first in the men's pole vault with a mark of 4.45 meters.
Haley, however, did not gloat after his victory. Instead, he found himself thinking more about what he put into his performance than what he got out of it.
“I was pretty pleased with my performance and not because of my first-place finish, but because of how I competed,” Haley said. “I had a personal record, which is nice.”
Haley dominated the pole vault competition, beating the second-place finisher by .65 meters.
