St. Anthony's senior Mike Brunoforte set a Long Island pole vault record Saturday in the Loucks games at White Plains with a jump of 16 feet, one inch.

Brunoforte is only the second Long Islander in history to clear 16 feet, according to pole vault coach Jim Henderson. Nick David of Mount Sinai had the old Long Island record of 16-0 in 2007.

Brunoforte's winning mark was also a St. Anthony's school record and a meet record, Henderson said. It is also the top jump in New York State this season and the 11th best in the nation.
