The Millrose Games ramps up with action on Saturday, but Thursday kicked off the meet at the Armory in NYC with the girls pole vault and Pennsylvania's best had a strong showing.
Manheim Township's Sydney Horn placed second to New York's Leah Pasqualetti, the current US No. 1. Pasqualetti cleared 13-7.25 for the win, while Horn earned the silver with a jump of 13-5.25, just off her season best and PR of 13-6. Horn is currently PA No. 1 and US No. 3.
A pair of PA vaulters -- Central Dauphin's Gabriella Recce and Germantown Academy's Liliana Cohen -- tied for third. Both girls cleared 12-9.5. For Cohen, that's just off her season best and PA No. 2 of 12-10. Recce, meanwhile, betters her own PR and PA No. 3 by a half inch.
Western Wayne's Trina Barcarola was sixth (12-5.5) to improve on her own PA No. 6. Wilson Area's Sara Altonen took tenth, clearing 11-11.75 (PA No. 9) and Carlisle's Rileigh Cardin was 12th with a jump of 10-11.75.
