In order to qualify for the state meet, Highland Park pole vaulter Ben Kirsch had to do something he’s never done before. Kirsch did just that, clearing a personal-best 13 feet, eight inches in the Class 3A Skokie sectional meet on Thursday, May 16 at Niles West High School. The senior’s efforts were good enough for second overall and a trip to state.
