Demi Payne: Lumberjack and National Champion

Last night, the purple lights were shining for a Lumberjack who did something no other Lumberjack has done before. Junior Demi Payne, won the NCAA Women's Pole Vaulting Championship title. 

Payne remains the only athlete in SFA history to hold a national championship title, among all sports. 

Now, not only did Payne win, she shattered the previous national record by almost a foot! At 15'-5" Payne could comfortably pole vault her way to the Starbucks on the second floor of the student center! 

Payne expressed her true excitement about her win, below, and we couldn't agree with her more! 

Now, the champion pole vaulter moves on to the next journey in her career: the road to the Olympics

On behalf of the entire SFA Office of Admissions staff, we are so proud of you, Demi Payne!! Thank you for showing what true determination and never-ending hard work can earn you! 

Axe 'Em Jacks!
