Breaking mark in the pole vault is twice as nice for Tigers’ Auble

PARMA — Warsaw’s Karmen Auble broke her own Section 5 girls pole vault record twice in the Hilton Cadet Showdown Saturday night.

Auble broke the record at 12 feet, 4 inches, then increased her mark to 12-7 and almost went higher.

“(She was) super close to 13 feet on her first attempt but I had her standards a little too deep and she brushed the bar on the way down,” said Mike Auble, Karmen’s dad. “Then she was just too exhausted after taking 14 jumps.”

The meet didn’t end until 11 p.m.

She had also vaulted at Caledonia-Mumford the night before.

Auble, a junior, had set the previous mark of 12-3 1/2 in 2011.

The previous Saturday, she won the pentathlon in the prestigious His & Hers Invitational at Penfield. She set a school record with 2,961 points in her first time ever trying the five-discipline event.

She is now ranked No. 1 in the state in both the pole vault and the pentathlon.

Alexander’s Jessica DeAngelo was fourth in the girls pole vault at the Showdown in 10-0.
