Track: Branch's Eckenroth honored by Atlanta Track Club
Austin Eckenroth capped a stellar high school track career with yet another accolade this week when the recent Flowery Branch graduate was honored by the Atlanta Track Club.
Eckenroth earned the Bruce Yohe Award from the ATC -- which goes to the Field Event Performer of the Year in Georgia.
The Falcons standout recently claimed his second straight Class AAAA pole vault title, clearing 15-foot-5.75 at the state meet on May 10 in Jefferson. Eckenroth notched the top mark in the pole vault in the entire state, regardless of classification, this season when he cleared 16-8 at the Region 8-AAAA championships on April 19 in Loganville.
Eckenroth is headed to compete for the University of South Carolina.
