Hempfield’s Bridget Guy reacts after clearing 12 feet 6 inches to claim the gold medal in the Class AAA pole vault during the PIAA track and field championships at Shippensburg University on May 24, 2014 in Shippensburg.

Virginia redshirt senior Bridget Guy defended her ACC women’s pole vault title at her home facility Friday night.

Guy’s winning height was 14 feet, 2 inches, her best of the season. She won the 2018 title with a jump of 14-7 1/2.

The Hempfield graduate entered the event seeded third. She was a WPIAL and PIAA Class AAA champion in 2014.

Guy made huge leaps in her heights after her sophomore season at Virginia.

She was the first Virginia female to win the ACC pole vault title. She became an All-American in 2018 when she finished fourth at the NCAA Division I Championships.

Guy and Kyle Guy were honored as Virginia’s top male and female athletes for the 2018-19 academic year at the Hoos Choice Awards on May 1.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
