For Timberg, it's a nearly two-inch improvement on her previous best and moves her up one spot on the all-time Pennsylvania list. At the VA Showcase earlier in the winter, also held at the Virginia Beach facility, Timberg vaulted 13-4.5, which was at the time a PA No. 3 all-time performance.
Now Timberg goes to PA No. 2 all-time, surpassing Sydney Horn's best of 13-6 from last season by a quarter inch. Only Katie Jones' 2017 state record of 13-9.25 stands above Timberg's best on the all-time state rankings.
Timberg cleared 13-6.25 on her second attempt. She had already won the competition on her first clearance of the meet at 11-7. Then she cleared 12-1 and 12-8 on her first attempts before moving the bar up to 13-6.25. She missed her attempts at 13-10, which would have broken the PA state record. Meghan Hart from Unionville placed second in the girls pole vault at the East Coast Invite, clearing 11-1.
