  • A pole vaulter to watch - Kortney Ross

    From my website.

    Kortney Ross, Junior, Westview High School, San Diego

    Meet: Escondido Invite- Friday May 1, 2009

    Bar progression and pole in video: 11'4 (14' 160lb), 11'10 (14'165lb), 12'5 (14'6 160lb), 13'0 (14'6 165lb)

    She is holding at about 13'6 ish.

    There is still a lot of technique work to be done, but "a make is a make" as they say. Just wait till she takes off right and gets all the way upsidedown. Next year is going to be very exciting.

    Last year pr- 12'4
    Last weekend at UC San Diego Meet- 12'7
    Yesterday- 13'-0

    100m 12.43
    200m 25.42
    She is 6' tall, ~140 lbs.

    That's a deadly combo for the PVer! 8-)

    You can teach technique, but speed and height - not really.
