After setting U.S. Junior girls record, Leah Pasqualetti aims for 15 feet in pole vault

Not only did Leah Pasqualetti of Orchard Park set a girls national junior record when she cleared 14 feet, 8.25 inches Friday night in a meet in California, she did it without a miss.

In the process, she defeated Paige Sommers, the previous No. 1-ranked vaulter in the country, as they went head-to-head in the Vaulter Magazine Stars and Stripes Big Red Barn Meet conducted at the Vaulter Club, a state-of-the-art pole vault-only facility in Sun City, located in Menifee, Calif.
