RUPERT, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) The sport of pole vaulting is already exciting enough, but this Minico Spartan had the crowd going wild Friday afternoon.
Zayne Maughan broke a decades old record of 13’9″. On Friday after qualifying for state, he decided to have some fun for his final jumps.
On his first attempt at 14′, he nailed it and to the crowd’s delight. Mind you, his personal record is 13’6″.
So then the stakes were raised for this District IV champion. The first try at 14’3″ didn’t fare well. But he still had two more attempts to go. His body didn’t clear the second attempt. One more for Maughan. He cleared the third attempt and now is the newest school-record holder in the boys pole vault for Minico High School.
