SRV vaulter soars to state-leading height

San Ramon Valley co-coach Tim Hunter told me that the Wolves’ Colin Barber cleared 16 feet, 7 inches in the team’s dual meet against Monte Vista today. That mark now leads the state according to the DyeStat Elite 100 high school rankings. Barber also won three other events: the long jump (22-11), triple jump (42-3 1/2) and the 110-meter high hurdles (16.68 seconds) to help San Ramon Valley’s boys squad defeat Monte Vista 79-57.

    16’7″ WOW. I recall when at Stanford Meet..Don Bragg set the WORLD RECORD at 15’+
    …though the poles were different and it was more of strength event then. Now there’s a gymnastic element also… with the new poles.
    but hey its a LONG way to drop…let alone vault and then come down.
