Posted on May 19, 2018 | in Uncategorized | by

Wilbur “Shorty” Jamerson of Henderson was shown clearing the bar at 10 feet, 2 inches as he tied for second place in pole vault in Kentucky High School Athletics Association (KHSAA) track and field meet at Stoll field, May 17, 1946. Jamerson went on to attend the University of Kentucky and became a star running back under coach Paul “Bear” Bryant’s football team. Jamerson accounted for both touchdowns in UK’s 1951 Sugar Bowl victory over Oklahoma. The KHSAA State Track and Field Championships, including the pole vault finals, is scheduled for this morning at UK’s outdoor Track and Field Complex. Herald-Leader Archive Photo
