William Tennent senior Mick Coleman called heads on the infield at Franklin Field on Saturday. The coin landed tails, so Coleman took third place in the Penn Relays boys' pole vault championship behind Quakertown senior James Weiss.

The two shook hands in a terrific show of sportsmanship. Both were disappointed they could not bring home the title after coming so close.

But each vaulter remained proud of clearing 15 feet, one inch and challenging Jordan Yamoah of Arlington High in LaGrangeville, N.Y., who won by clearing 15 feet, five inches.
