Re: Pole vault in the rain

Living in the Pacific NW, I highly recommend stickum and DO NOT USE CHALK. One of the best brands is Mueller Stickum, but any sticky adhesive will be better than chalk or nothing.
Good luck!

Re: How high for college?

You can either set your site on a good DIV II school or find a good Community College with a PV Coach and work on your vault to get you to the DI level. In the end it will cost a lot less, you will save money and if you improve your vault may have a pick of a good DI school.

Re: Brad Walker 5.90

Brad & Spencer2.jpg I have watched this several times and stopped it at the apex and this vault was the biggest and best jump in the history of pole vault!!!!!!!!!! He would have set a world record with no problem. My estimate of this jump was 6.30 - 6.35, which would shatter the long standing ...

Re: Oregon High School Top 20

Sorry, I just noticed that she was listed at 11'10" and wanted to pass along that she had a better PR in High School. You do a GREAT job and I know it is impossible to keep up with every new addition, I was just trying to help ;)

I wrote to him a few days ago and he said it was the same as 2011. So Mens PV is Sunday July 8th at 10 am for over 40 and 1:00 pm for 15 - 39.
Hope this helps and see you there!
