Thats insane!

Our boys and girls j/v team can jump well over that. Even most of our freshman, and I imagine that most schools (at least in California) are the same way

See this topic http://www.polevaultpower.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3910 entitled what's you league min standard. Talk about dichotomy!!!

In all fairness, Delaware is a really really small state, and there are probably not that many schools that have pole vaulting, especially indoors.

What standards to other states use?

NY for 2005 will use GPV of 9-6 and BPV of 13-6.

(GHJ is 5-3 and BHJ is 6-4)

Sorry, Vaultref, but your answer for NY is misleading. Unless they changed the rules for this year, any boy or girl who wins the state qualifier for any of the sections qualifies for the state meet regardless of the height. Therefore, it is possible for someone to vault below the state qualifying height, but still qualify for the state meet if that is the height that wins the state qualifier for that section. The qualifying height standards apply to those who finish second. Also, I believe each section is allowed only one other qualifier than the winner, and the qualifying height has to be reached in the state qualifier.

Try explaining the rationale behind this to some very good boy or girl high school vaulter in a section where the competition happens to be strong. For example, I don't know if the three > 13 ft. Suhr girls (Mary Saxer, Tiffany Maskulinski and Jenn O'Neil) all attend high schools in the same section. However, if they do, one of them, the third place finisher, is not going to the state meet even if she jumps 13' at the state qualifier.

For outdoor, at least they subdivide the state qualifiers for each section into large school and small school categories. However, each section is limited to one additional invitation, provided the boy or girl meets the qualifying height.

sry for the late reply and i hate to make excuses for our low qualifying standards but we really are a small state and with the limited vaulting facillities that delaware provides its already hard enough to get a decent number of vaulters. Our indoor season forces us to jump outside because we do not have a indoor facility that can house a pv pit so the state took that into consideration while making the standards. I can say though that the qualifying standards dont really reflect the vaulting abilities of delawares vaulters...just to throw that out there ;)
