Last time a college athlete won the elites?

I don't think Brad ever won as a collegian... Tamara Diles is the only other one I can think of.

Anyone else remember?

I think you're right with Diles being the only other collegian that has won.

Unfortunately, it says a lot more about our dearth of post collegian vaulters than it does about the quality of our collegian vaulters.

Agreed. We are struggling.

Yes, Brad says he is healthy and will compete outdoors, it's just that by the time he got healthy it was too late for him to get a good solid training base in time to compete indoors this year.

Not much $$$$ in Reno. The athletes go when they can, but a major prize money will win out every time. Our athletes gotta pay the bills. Although I will say that Lacy Janson turned down a Millrose Invite because she had already committed to Reno.
