We begin our series of Division 1 previews for the Outdoor Track and Field season with our lists of the top returning pole vaulters among D1 Boys and D1 Girls.
Timothy Ellis (Valley Vista, Sr.) is the top returning pole vaulter by a full foot thanks to his performance at the Arizona Meet of Champions where he cleared 15-6. He'll contend with John Carpenter (Sr.) and Tyson Smith (Jr.) from Mesa Mountain View. Though Carpenter only vaulted twice last season, Smith placed 2nd at the AIA State Meet. On the girls' side, Sevanna Hanson (Desert Vista, Sr.) is the returning D1 Girls State Champion for the Pole Vault. Samara McConnell (Perry, Jr.) and Madeline York (Hamilton, Sr.) finished 2nd and 3rd respectively in the D1 Girls' contest at last year's AIA State Meet and return this season among four girls who have cleared 12 feet.
Check out our full lists of the Top Returning D1 Pole Vaulters for both boys and girls.
