Neither had any misses until last height but instead of having a jump off the coach running it said the vaulter that came in higher wins. Never heard of this?
I'm from NY and this is not
a NY State rule and of course not a NFHS rule.. May have been a "meet unique" rule.
Some invitational have unique rules .. I'm sure you've heard of the six-jump rule? The vertical jumps are run that way a one of the large inviational relay style meets here in my sectional area.
That be said, I will be at Warwick High School on Tuesday for a late season invit meet and I will ask about the meet where this incident occurred. An yes... I'll be running the vault as I have done at this meet for a number of years. No special rules apply.
