Grip width???

Hello

I was just wondering if someone could enlighten me on the pros and cons of having a wide/narrow grip width. I've seen many elite vaulters have a pretty close grip and be successful and vice versa. What are the benefits?

Rocking back fully

I'm a 14'3" baker and a junior in high school. I always get a huge hip height buy I'm having trouble rocking back all the way with my tuck and that is effecting the way I invert and shoot. This makes me stay to shoot towards the bar instead of vertically. Any advice?
