Colorado AT #1 Girls Pole Vault

Well, that didn't take long. 

After sealing the win in the pole vault competition with a first-attempt clearance at 4.05 meters, Andrea Willis selected to move the bar to 4.10 meters. It would seem that 4.05m was a little less than an inch short of the all-time high school girls record for Colorado, and 4.10m would fix that minor problem.

It was another first-attempt clearance at 4.10 meters that put the record in Willis' hands.

Either Willis is an exceptionally good out-of-the-gate pole vaulter or there's a lot to come from her this season (or both). In any case, Willis cleared 4.10m (13-5.25) on six practices' worth of work.

Three additional attempts at 4.16m yielded no new clearance. 

To help put the mark into perspective, 4.10m beats the top indoor performance of all returning pole vaulters across the nation from last indoor season.
