NCAA Dec Pole Vault

6 guys still in at 5.20. Glad to see these guys are trying to erase the stereotype of a 'pole vaulting like a decathlete'.

Another great set of college performances showing a good future for USA Track and Field. I know the real elites do not take indoors that serious but had USA Indoor been at a time not the week before NCAA's the top 7 performances at USA's would have been college athletes.

This is the same way as discussed in the men's open vault where college athletes would have taken the top 4 spots at USA Indoors with those results and misses.

.. Even three of the heptathletes would have been competitive at USA Indoor open pole vault.
