Kansas track and field junior Zach Bradford placed third overall in the men’s pole vault on the third and final day of the NCAA Indoor Championships on Saturday in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
Bradford has now earned All-American honors in all three indoor seasons as a Jayhawk, earning first team honors in both 2019 and 2021. The 2020 Indoor Championships were canceled due to COVID-19, though qualifiers were granted All-American honors following the meet.
On Saturday, Bradford cleared 5.70m (18-8.25 ft.) on his first attempt to secure a top-three finish. He missed on all three attempts at 5.75m (18-10.25 ft.) after that.
With the conclusion of the NCAA Indoor Championships, Kansas will turn its focus to outdoor season, which continues March 19-20 at the Missouri Spring Opener in Columbia, Missouri.
