Up until four or five years ago, there was no girls pole vault. Copper Hills’ Brielle Davis is on pace to smash its state records now that it does exist.
“Hannah Stetler from Bingham held the record until recently, but Brielle Davis is a freshman who has been jumping a year and is learning fast,” Utah Pole Vault Academy Director Kody Pierce said. “She is a freshman and is very special. I have high expectations for her in the coming state meets.”
At a recent meet, Riverton’s Robbie Walker cleared 16 feet 3 inches to break a state record that has stood since 1995. It’s a culmination of his continued hard work and the help of specific trainers.
“Robbie has trained with us for several years,” Pierce said. “He is a good athlete. We say he has great hops. He is a hard worker. He committed himself and had the state record in mind for a couple of years.”
