Rachel Venter Nabs 7th Grade Outdoor Pole Vault Record

Competing at a PV "Mini Meet" at the barn, 7th Grader Rachel Venter (Warwick) got one more record before the year of COVID closed out the Season for good. Venter, who set the Indoor 7th Grade State Record at 10-0, had been hard pressed to find meets to attempt and bump that mark higher for Spring. However, moving to an 8-step approach yesterday, proved to be the key.

Venter cleared 10-3 on her first attempt, then took three good shots at 10-9. She will finish her season with club mates at Vault Factory meet (Aug.1) and the Vertical Adventures Atlantic City Beach Vault (Aug. 8).

Venter breaks the previous record held at 10-0, by Karmen Auble (Warsaw) set in 2009.
