There's little doubt that pole vaulting is heavily on the rise in Pennsylvania. The competition is getting more and more deep each year. This winter, we should see that trend continue with 4 girls back with jumps over 12 feet. Surely, the 13-foot bar will be challenged again this season as Mackenzie Horn and Abby Norwillo did last season.

The top returning vault comes from State College's Lyndsey Reed, who cleared 12-7 last season before jumping 12-6 to take fourth (the best of any non-senior) at the state meet. Reed is a two-time indoor state medalist and will be looking to move into the top spot this season.

Among the other 12+ vaulters from last winter are Loyalsock's Hailey Zurich, Scranton Preparatory's Victoria Atkinson, and Abington Heights' Danielle Heine. Zurich was eighth at indoor states last year and then was third at outdoor states in AA. Heine jumped 12-0 at indoor states to take fifth overall and also wound up fifth at outdoor states in AAA. Atkinson just missed out on an indoor state medal, but was sixth at outdoor states in AAA. All three have a great shot to make the top of the PV podium come late February.

One girl -- Sydney Horn of Manheim Township -- will be looking to keep the state title in the family. Horn's older sister Mackenzie vaulted to indoor and outdoor state titles and the record books last season. Now the younger Horn, Sydney, a junior, will be one to watch. After taking seventh at indoor states last year, she had a big outdoor season, which included a 12-6.25 vault, the best of any outdoor returner for this year.

Among the other state qualifiers back this season in the pole vault from last winter are Cierra Crane (Central York), Corah Krantz (Lakeland), Melissa Israel (Spring Ford), Kendall Grossman (Moniteau), and Trina Barcarola (Western Wayne).
