States and state opens just ended for me, and i cleared 13' both meets, besting my previous personal record which was 12'6. Althought a PR is always good, here is the problem. My school record is 13'4, and i just...

yes bryan curley has a PR of 15'1 this season. he only got 13'6 at state class so that was his qualifying.

I just got back from the state open meet, Thull won with 15'6 and Curley took second at 14'6. Results should be up soon.

wow your situation is just like mine. I am also on a 14'6 pole, and got 13 at states, barely missing 13'6. Looks like both of us just need to get in more. Like the other guys said, everything is slow on ur vault, but you need to somehow get in, maybe pushing out more with ur bottom hand. In my opini...

Is your handgrip too wide? I had the same problem for a while, it was because my hand grip was too wide for my arm to come in, so i would just block like hell with my bottom hand. If you try to make your handgrip a little closer to shoulder width apart, and maybe move back another step or 2 to get m...

I have also realized that when I take full jumps, I have the nasty habit of rushing out of the rock back position immediately into the invert and trying to turn all too quickly. What can I be doing to improve my timing so that I become more patient and do not hurry everything on the top of the pole...
