    This is a pretty dry question, just looking for a stat here--but does anybody know what Dutch vaulted when he was in high school?

          Any idea where/when? Best I have in '32 is 11-6.

            Cited in Cordner Nelson's "Track's Greatest Champions" book; I didn't look at any lists.

              Warmerdam was born 22 June 1917. In '32, at age 14-15, he vaulted 12' 3". The next year he went 13' 0". In '47, at age 29-30, he reportedly vaulted 14' 4" in an exhibition and, in '52 in another exhibition, reportedly went 14' 4" at age 34-35. In '57, at age 39-40, he reportedly vaulted 13' 0" with a fiberglass pole in an exhibition.
