Warren “Ike” LaBounty Normal Pole Vaulter

Pole Vaulter, 1941.

On May 24, 1941, Illinois State Normal University competed in the Illinois Intercollegiate Conference track and field championship in DeKalb, on the campus of what was then called Northern Illinois State Teachers College.
ISNU finished second behind Northern, with Western Illinois State Teachers College, Southern, Eastern, Carthage, Elmhurst, and Eureka rounding out the top eight teams. Seen here is ISNU sophomore Warren “Ike” LaBounty, who won the conference pole vault title.
