Sydney Horn is an All-American

Despite a sudden end to the indoor track and field season and the cancellation of the New Balance Nationals Indoor meet because of health safety guidelines during the COVID-19 outbreak, the National Scholastic Athletics Foundation announced its All-America teams Monday night.

Manheim Township’s Sydney Horn has been selected among the top six athletes in her event.

Horn finished the season ranked No. 3 in the nation in the girls pole vault, according to MileSplit’s rankings. She cleared a personal-record height of 13 feet, 6 inches multiple times during the indoor season and planned to take a shot at the Pennsylvania record of 13-9.25 at the national meet.

The Blue Streaks senior, a High Point commit, won her second consecutive indoor state title March 1 and looks to defend her PIAA Class 3A outdoor title if the outdoor season, which has been suspended indefinitely, resumes.
