* Hana Moll after clearing 14-7.25 at the start of the month
- - -
It seems like days ago that Hana Moll kicked off her junior season by setting a new class record. At the Texas Elite Pole Vault EXPO Explosion on Jan. 1, Moll cleared 14 feet, 7.25 inches in the pole vault.
Time didn't stand still.
This weekend, Moll, a junior at Olympia Capital (WA) High School, did something special at the 2022 National Pole Vault Summit.
Moll cleared 14-8 to set a new lifetime best in the event, improving on her previous junior record. She also improved her No. 2 all-time performance with this clearance and surpassed her sister Amanda in overall clearance by three-quarters of an inch. In June, Amanda posted a mark of 14-7.25.
Now Hana is just inch away from tying history. The indoor national record was set by Chloe Cunliffe of West Seattle (WA) back in 2019 where she cleared 14-9.
That record is in jeopardy with how Moll's season is looking so far. This is her second performance of the indoor season that was over 14-7. Combined, the Moll sisters are the country's most talented twosome in high school pole vault history.
Amanda finished second with a 14-2 clearance and Tessa Mudd of Charlestown (SC) finished third with a jump of 12-10.
