Chloe Timberg won her first NCAA title on Thursday evening by clearing a lifetime-best 15-5.5 (4.71m) and setting a new NCAA Meet Record.

A Central Bucks West graduate, Timberg now represents Rutgers University. She has been a staple amongst the NCAA's top talents, but broke through in a big way by winning her first crown.

Timberg entered at 13-7.25 and cleared the next five heights in consecutive attempts. At 15-3 she missed on her first attempt before clearing on her second and winning the NCAA Title.

Additionally, her mark moved her to No. 3 All-Time in the College Ranks.

At this year's Indoor Track and Field Championship, Timberg finished third behind Hana Moll (Washington) and Riley Felts (Charlotte). They finished in third (14-9) and second (14-11) this time around.

Timberg still holds the Pennsylvania High School outdoor Pole Vault record of 14-2.25. Veronica Vacca broke her indoor state record this past season.

Fellow Pennsylvanian, Katie Urbine (Solanco) finished 10th at the NCAA Championship while representing Liberty University. The freshman vaulted 14-1.25 and was the fourth underclassmen in the field.

Chloe Timberg is expected to compete at tomorrow's Katie Moon Pole Vault Classic in Ohio. A Live Stream of the action will be available on FloTrack.
