Alex Bishop Pole Vault

2016 Outdoor Season

We have a few competition left before the Olympic Trials Qualifying period is closed.

Alex Bishop has been turning on the heat the past couple weeks as the Olympic Qualifying period is nearing a close. He has posted two bars above his previous PB at 17' 11" and 18'. He is proving consistent in the range being able to open at 17' 5". With a few more opportunities to qualify in the next 10 days we look to see big things from Alex.

Natasha Kolbo Tied her PB last week with a vault of 14' 3", and took attemps at a bar that would qualify her for the Olympic Trials.

Mandissa Marshall continues her constistant streak around 13' 7", and is taking great jumps at bars in the 14'-14' 5" range. We are looking forward to seeing her vault a PB soon.
