Upshur averaged 12.7 points over the three games beginning Dec. 8, as he scored 12 points against Central Penn, a career-high 15 against Milligan College and added 11 against Longwood. Upshur also had four rebounds against Longwood, and chipped in five steals against CPC, tying the Keydet high for the season, which he set earlier in the year.
Sing broke her own pole vault record once again at the Golden Flash Gala, held at Kent State this past weekend. She cleared 3.80 meters (12’5 ½”) to finish fourth in the competition, and break the school record for the second time in two meets this season. The effort ties her lifetime best, set at the Radford Invitational last outdoor season, and marks the eighth straight meet at which she has cleared the 12-foot mark. She remains the only woman in VMI history to do so.
