RADFORD –– Austin Pack’s burgeoning career as a moonlighting track star is climbing onward and upward. Onward to the state tournament and upward to…well, who knows how high.
Pack, a junior who is better known as a quarterback, jumpshooter and pitcher/infielder, and whose lone job in track is bar-hopping, opened some eyes and set a new school record last Saturday by winning the Region C high jump championship at Radford University with a leap of six feet, six and a quarter inches.
That’s 6-6. And a quarter.
