Anna Willis ran her family’s streak to seven consecutive state track and field meets with a pole vault championship when she captured the 3A title on Friday afternoon.

The Classical Academy freshman cleared 12-foot-6 to overtake Kourtney Rathke of Peak to Peak. She then moved the bar up to 12-10 in an attempt to break sister Erika’s 3A record of 12-9, but strong wind gusts rose just as she started those three tries and she couldn’t clear the mark (though her personal record is 13-4).
