Stafford senior and multiple time state champion Gennifer Hirata set not one but two state records at the St. Chris Invitational. She ultimately cleared 13-6 to win the pole vault after also clearing 13-4 (a new state record) earlier in the competition.
The University of South Dakota commit did vault 13-3 earlier in the year but the height was not measured for a record attempt. This time they left nothing to doubt measuring the height before and after each new height. Her 13-4 and 13-6 clearance bested Cameron Overstreet's 13-1.5 state record from 2011.
She now sits at US #2 and also as the greatest vaulter in VA history surpassing Lizzie Powell's outdoor record of 13-3 as well.
