Four Things You Need To Know About The Desert Dream Invite


Paige Sommers has a chance to go after a national record in the pole vault this weekend

- - - 

The national high school girls pole vault record of 14 feet, 8 inches was set a year ago by Chloe Cunliffe at the Arcadia Invitational.

But Sommers may have a chance to surpass that mark this weekend. 

She recently competed at the Big Red Barn on June 6 and cleared her second official outdoor mark over 14-feet in 2020. The Westlake Village (CA) junior set her personal best of 14-6 in February. Sommers already had two major jumps this year and is officially a threat to take down the national record this weekend.
