BRINKLEY WRAPS UP SEASON WITH TOP-25 FINISH AT NCAA EAST REGIONALS

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Although he only spent one season as a member of the Virginia Commonwealth University men's track & field program, senior Kevin Brinkley (Richmond, Va.) made quite an impact with seven wins and two school records.

On Thursday evening, Brinkley's season came to a close with a top-25 finish at the NCAA East Regionals, hosted by North Carolina A&T University.

He qualified for the East Regionals after clearing 16' 6 ¾" at the Penn Relays in late April and was seeded 39th out of 48 pole vaulters in the east region heading into the meet.

Brinkley cleared his first two jumps, but he was unsuccessful with his three tries to clear 16' 8 ¾" and finished 25th in the region after clearing 16' 2 ¾".
