Dammit Pete, I thought your pr was 15'3 and I tied it last year! Now I'm gonna have to come out of retirement and jump 15'4.25" to get ahead of you!

What's your pr in jeans and flats with no tread on them? Mine's 13'5! :P

he enables me to go on the heights.

That would be Randy Hall of Texas A&M at 18'2 1/4" and his son Hunter (Jr. Homestead High School, IN) at 16'8" for a total of Father/Son 34'10 1/4". Randy's dad, Charlie Hall also vaulted on a steel pole 13'. And Randy's youngest brother Rob(Texas A&M) vaulted a best of 16'3". Randy's oldest brother gets credit for 12' for a family total (not immediate family) for 76' 1 1/4".
