Strong senior season

Shelbyville graduate Erin Diemer wrapped up an impressive senior season at Southern Illinois University last week. She competed in the NCAA West Preliminaries in College Station, Texas for the first time in her career, finishing tied for 23rd in the pole vault with a clearance of 13-4.25. Earlier in the season, Diemer swept the Missouri Valley Conference pole vault titles (indoor and outdoor). Diemer was a four-time state qualifier in the pole vault at Shelbyville. As a senior, she took second at the Franklin Regional with a personal-best clearance of 11-8. Diemer finished as high as 10th in her four appearances at the state meet, doing so as a junior. She is the daughter of Norman and Valerie Diemer.
