Amazing Texas Relays PV competition, winner cleared 19-¾

Postby trackstar » Fri Mar 29, 2013 7:16 pm

Someone in the Texas Relays thread suggested the pole vault result deserved a separate thread, and I agree, so here it is.

Mississippi's Sam Kendricks won at a whopping 19-0 3/4, but that was only the tip of the iceberg of a great competition: nine athletes vaulted 18-1 or higher tonight in Austin. According to TFRRS, only six vaulters cleared 18-1 in the entire 2012 NCAA season.

Perhaps GH or some other historian could tell us what the deepest-ever NCAA vault competition was?

Barber is still a junior, he might break the jwr this year. Did Canada ever have a world class pole vaulter?

Bruce Simpson - 5th at Munich.

Sam Kendricks, our newest 19-footer, is only a 20-year-old soph at Mississippi!

More perspective on Kendricks’s jump:

Since 2010 only one (!) American jumped higher (Brad Walker).
In the last 10 years only two(!) vaulters Kendricks’s age (or younger) jumped 5.80+
Raphael HOLZDEPPE GER - jumped 5.80 as a teenager then again when he was 21 (2010) and last year set a PB of 5.91 to win the bronze medal in London.
Vladyslav REVENKO UKR - Jumped 5.80 back in 2005. Since then he was not able to repeat this results and last year was the first time he jumped 5.70 since 2006.

One would hope that Kendricks future career will resemble the first rather than the second.

The women's PV also produced some good results.
Bethany Buell topped the field with her 14-7 and 1/2.
Four others all made 14-1 and 3/4.
Only one of them did not PR!!
Buell's mark makes her # 6 All Time Collegiate!!

This one's for you, polevaultpower......and your new child!! :D

Ugh. The second time since '89 that I'm out of town during the Relays and I kiss the best collegiate vault competition possibly ever.

So the 'answer' is 1991

1. 5.80 19-0¼ Istvan Bagyula' 91
2. 5.70 18-8¼ Bill Payne 91
3. 5.70 18-8¼ Pat Manson 91
5-6. 5.50 18-½ Simon Arkell & Scotty Miller 91
7. 5.50 18-½ Bob Shank 91
8. 5.50 18-½ Rich Fulford 91
9. 5.50 18-½ Brad Darr 91

compared to TR

1 Kendricks, Sam 5.81 19-0.75
2 Barber, Shawn 5.71 18-8.75
3 Simmons, Cale 5.61 18-4.75
4 Blankenship, Jake 5.61 18-4.75
5 Whitt, Jack 5.61 18-4.75
6 Wait, Kyle 5.51 18-1
7 Ross, Colton 5.51 18-1
7 Weirich, Victor 5.51 18-1
9 Uhle, Joey 5.51m 18-1

so places 5-9 are better

After two full days of the decathlon and a slate of mostly HS relays on Friday afternoon, I left hours before the PV even began since I wanted to get back and watch my Ducks play Louisville; now if I had the choice to do that scenario over again...........
