I am a female freshman vaulter. I'm only 5'3 but I am very strong. I have a back round in cross country, sprinting, gymnastics, crossfit, and weight lifting. This season I was planning on doing my regular mile, 400 and 800, like I did in middle school. My coach saw me working out (I lift heavy and do a mix of piliates and just whatever seems difficult) and made me try pole vault. My body is alot like any of the college vaulters that you see pictures of and I did very well for my first day of pole vault. I know I am stronger than the majority of girls who pole vault at my school, but I have no idea how much strength has to do with pole vault. (I have a HUGE amount of core strength) my coach has a huge amount of faith in me and sees me as a diamond in the rough because I came out of nowhere and I am already pretty good. What would be a respectable height for a freshman girl (like me)?

10 ft would be awesome but 9 would be good since its your first year. Look up state qualifying and shoot for that
