On Jan. 16, at the annual Pole Vault Summit in Sparks, Nevada, Miramonte senior Molly Colwell broke the indoor pole vault school record with a jump of 10-feet-2-inches. The event attracts more than 3000 pole-vaulters every year, from all over the world for training clinics and competitions. Colwell also did a 10-foot-6-inch jump, but the bar fell off a few seconds after she landed in the pit. This spring, she has set her sights on the school outdoor record of 11-feet-6-inches, and is well on her way to breaking it. Molly is also a ranked competitive sailor and trains year round for both events. Other Miramonte Pole Vault Club vaulters participated in the event, including: senior Sam Whiting (12-feet-6-inches), junior Mathew Immesoete (12-feet-10-inches), freshman Thomas Erisman (9-feet-2-inches), and freshman Daniel Erisman (seven feet).
