Jenn Suhr received another honor on Sunday, this time from her college alma mater.

The Fredonia native and Olympic gold medal-winning pole vaulter was inducted into the Roberts Wesleyan University Hall of Fame.

An All-American in both basketball and track & field during her time with the Redhawks, Suhr (Class of 2004) scored 1,819 points during her basketball career and was the NCCAA National Player of the Year her senior season.

In track & field, Suhr won collegiate national titles in javelin, 100-meter hurdles and pole vault. From there, the 2009 Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame inductee went on to become the most accomplished women’s pole vaulter in U.S. history, including an Olympic silver medal in 2008, an Olympic gold medal in 2012 and 17 U.S. national titles.

Suhr’s latest Hall-of-Fame induction comes on the heels of the announcement last month that she will be one of two pole vaulting coaches at Roberts Wesleyan, joining Chris Brhel, a former University at Buffalo pole vaulter.

The additional financial assistance of the community is critical to the success of the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame.
We gratefully acknowledge these individuals and organizations for their generous support.
