1 5 TH * LAWTON CONSTITUTION-MORNING PRESS, Sunday, Aug. 23, 1963 PENNEL VAULTS 17 FEET! By BEN FUNK . MIAMI. Fla. (AP) -- With one perfect leap, handsome John Pennel made a big dream come true Saturday when he shattered the elusive 1" foot pole vault barrier nnd made it look easy. With the bar set at 17 leet, three-fourths inch, the 23-year-old Miamian soared over it with magnificent ense on his first attempt and appeared to clear the bar by several inches. Thirty minutes later, when he tried to push the world record still higher, his form deserted him and he failed in three attempts at 17 feet, 3% inches. "I wanted that," the Northeast Louisiana State College athlete said with a broad grin as hundreds of yelling hometo\vn admirers, including his parents, Mr. and Mrs. William 0. Fennel, surged around him after his record vault at the University of Miami, "This was a perfect day to wait for." Pennel said. "The clouds covered the sun just before the jump and cooled - i t oH. That helped a lot. And there was no wind at all"I felt 'fine and m y - form couldn't have been belter. , I rocked back on the pole farther than I ever did before. "I knew one of these days every thing was. going lo be just right and 17.feet .wasn't going lo Jook too high fit all. This was the day. And I couldn't think of a better place for it than here at home." The event in which Penne! broke the world, record for the seventh time this year was the Florida Gold Coast AAU meet, an obscure meet for youngsters. A scheduled assaull by Bob Hayes of Florida ASM University on his own world 100 yard dash record of 9.1 · seconds was canceled when he failed to appear, There was no lop competition to inspire Pennel to a great effort. His best opponent, former high school teammate Henry Wads- woi'lh o[ Miami, failed in his first I leap when the bar was placed al 1 15-1. Pennel cleared that level easily with his "-first warmup leap and just as easily made 16-0% inch on his second vault. The bar then was placed at the record heignl On all three tries at 17-37», Fennel struck the bar on the way up. Later, he explained that he had lost his balance, Pennel added two inches Saturday to his own world mark of 1G-10M, set in the recent dual meet between United States and British teams in London. In that eveni. he fried for 17 feet bul i nicked the bar on the way down.

Perhaps, that's where he got the power/ill lungs that Saturday helped him sail over the cross bar at 17 feet. % inch in the pole vault -- an accomplishment thai, in majiy respects, is even greater than the wiping out of.

Much of the delay wa5 due lo his music. Mrs. William Penne!

But then one day h° saw Henry Wad.'worth. a former vaulting STeat at the University of Florida, competinz in his specialty. From t h a t day on t h e sousaphone began gathering dust. It pot (o a point where he he- came downright irritated one day when his musical duties wjth the Coral Gables band interfered with his pole vaultirs. From then he spent his /ree lime vaulttnz and when not in .forma! practice he was climbinz ropes In his back yard, swinging on a chinnine bar and bouncing around on a rebound tumbler. After zraduatinz from hizh school he entered Northeastern Louisiana State College, where Bob Groseclosp is the track coach. For three years Fennel vaulted in the same obscurity that hid his wiusnphone efforts but on March Jfi this year al the Shreveport, La., relays he sailed over the 15-9 mark despite rain and wind, That zave him his first taste of the headlines. On March 21. at the Memphis Relays, he borrwed a pole from a fellow competitor and wximrd 16-3, ft half-inch hizher than anyone else ever had done. Fennel, who stands 5-11 and weighs 170 pounds, kept pushjnz the ccilinz ever hizhcr. Prior to Saturday he had pushed the world record hi~her six different Hmes. Whll« with lh» United Stnte* truck nwt nn It." tMir of Eurnpfl rhi« *ummer he rwrterrd the record thrw rime* In n three-week period. Always he sought to clenr J7 feel. Saturday bofore Uio homefolk« In Miami'* Oold Oast A.-\i; track m-e he made It. Fennel uses the controversial class pole that has revolutionized v a u l t i n g in the past 15 months. Prior to the slass pole's appearance vaulters used moral or bamboo stocks and virtually lifted themselves over the cross bar. The slass pole, with its tremendous flexibility, all but tosses th» vaulters over. Don BrauR. onetime holder of the world record and who won the Rome Olympic sold medal with an effort of 1S-SU, used a metal pofe during his career and contemptuously refers to the glass pole vaulters as catapultists. Pennel says the present crop of vauliers can hike the record ro 17-3 or 17-! and that the successor lo Bras^ as Olympic champion will have to 50 17 at Tokyo next year, " The Coral Cables youth is a well-rounded athlete. Ke can broo.d jump better than 23 feet and c=n run the 100-yard dash in 10.1 seconds. He is a superb swimmer and even holds a record of sorts in sofrbal], having thrown it 115 yards. He is a B student and will complete his course at Northeast Louisiana in January. He is single, ioves fast sports cars and rarely, if ever, plays the sousaphone anymore. 1KB IX« IBS-1 mi ItW MO--fl E--Wine, Cardwrll, Dalrymplf. PO-A-- PHIiburgh 27-11.
