Three Woodland Park pole vaulters are in prime position to make a run for a giant leap at next month’s state track-and-field meet.
Senior Chase Graves and juniors Davey Schoenberger and Gunnar Grace have been in the top 18 in qualifying all season.
Graves went to state last spring and finished ninth with a personal best of 12-6 at Jefferson County Stadium in Lakewood.
“I’m setting a personal goal of 14 (feet) this year,” Graves said. “I’m hoping that will get me first.”
Graves’s best jump this season is 12-1. The school record is 13 feet.
