Bison Vaulters Soar at National Pole Vault Summit

RENO, Nev. – North Dakota State senior Brittany Stangl recorded a lifetime best to headline a number of strong performances by the Bison pole vaulters at the National Pole Vault Summit held in Reno, Nev., on Saturday night.

Stangl cleared 13-01.50 (4.00m) to win Section 2 of the collegiate competition, becoming only the fourth woman in NDSU history to surpass the 13-feet or four-meter barrier in the indoor pole vault. She’s now tied for third on the NDSU all-time list with teammate Anna Benke.

In the same section, Bison freshman Klara Lyon placed second, and sophomore Lauren Gietzen took third. Both cleared a personal-best height of 12-05.50 (3.80m), and they are now tied for sixth in NDSU indoor history in the pole vault.

Benke vaulted 12-09.50 (3.90m) on Saturday.

Stangl is tied for second in The Summit League this season in the event, while Benke ranks fifth.

On the men’s side, Bison junior Grant Mjelstad won his section with a clearance of 15-11.00 (4.85m).
