Alex Bishop Pole Vault

2016 Outdoor Season

Last week was a crazy one for Risen Athletes. On Thrusday Cole Riddle won the AZ Meet of Champs with a PB of 16'6", and Tista Smith took 2nd with 12'6".

Our Elite athletes showed their toughness doing a two State double.
On Friday they vaulted at the St. Vrain Invitational in Colorado where Alex Bishop took 1st Place with a 17' 3" vault, and Natsha and Mandissa took 2nd and 3rd.
They then got a short nap at night, only to have to wake up early and catch the first flight back to Phoenix AZ, where they competed that evening at the 1st Altis summer series competition. In Phoenix, Alex jumped a season's best of 17'7" and Mandissa Marshall jumped a season's best of 14'. Trista Smith also vaulted on Saturday nearly tying her PB, but fished with a solid 12' vault.

Natasha Kolbo has had a great start to her outdoor season, winning at Mesa from short run, placing third and Mt. Sac, and vaulting a New PB (14' 3 1/4") to win the open division at the OTC April 21st.
