HUNTINGTON, Ind. – The Huntington University track and field program has added a local product to its roster with the signing of Norwell High School standout Conner Nash.

Nash has earned the reputation as one of the best pole vaulters in the area. After taking first at pole vault at sectionals as a junior, he followed up with a second place finish at sectionals this past spring and then went on to claim fourth at regionals. He boasts a PR of 13’.

The Markle native earned numerous top honors in his senior campaign including finishing first at the Bishop Luers Relay and Guerin Catholic Invitational. His vault of 12’6” at the Northeast Eight conference meet tied a conference record and landed him second at the meet.

Nash wrapped up his prep career by receiving NHS’s Golden Shield, the school’s highest award, for physical fitness.

Conner is the son of Scott and Kim Nash of Markle, Ind.

The Huntington University Foresters compete in 17 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past decade, Huntington has produced 39 NAIA All-America honors and 234 All-America Scholar Athlete honors. Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations.
