Stafford senior and All-American Gennifer Hirata finally broke thru the 14 foot barrier. This Friday afternoon in Austin Texas at the historic Texas Relays she was able to win the competition with a US #1 14-0 clearance.
That mark follows arguably one of the greatest years in pole vaulting by Hirata. Last June she was the state champion and then national runner-up at NBNO. This indoor season she defended her state title, broke the state record, and finished as an All-American at NBNI.
Hirata is headed to The University of South Dakota.
