THE POLE VAULT!The Pole Vault is arguably the event in the state of Arkansas that has made the most gains in the last 10 years. Arkansas HS pole vaulters have been ranked in the 10 in the nation in just about every year in the last decade. We've even had an Olympian. The pole vault has grown mostly because top vaulters in the state are coming back to coach and help out with younger vaulters.
On the girls side we have the 1-2 punch of Weeks twins that are ranked #1 and #2. Lots of Razorbacks on this list! Lets see how it goes? Voting ends 7/11 at 8pm.
Not many states can claim they have had 4 boys over 17 feet in high school. Arkansas can! This one is going to be interesting.
What Is This?
This is a fan poll tournament where your votes determined the greatest pole vaulter of the past decade.
We've selected 8 girls and 8 boys based on their marks in the vault, ranked them 1-8, placed them in a bracket of head-to-head matchups where your poll votes will determine who advances. Early-round voting will last 48 hours.
Athletes included are from the period between 2011 and 2020. This is based solely on OUTDOOR track performances. Athletes were selected based on top pole vault rankings within the decade. The final cut to 8 was based solely on their rankings.
How This Works
Athletes are seeded 1 through 8 based on their rankings from the vault. Every two days we will advance the athlete with the most votes to the next round. You may vote on Ar.MileSplit.com. Be sure to spread the word to advance your favorites into the next round!
