First, it was Amanda Moll who cleared the elusive 15-foot barrier indoors by setting a new girls pole vault indoor U.S. high school record of 15-1.5 at the National Pole Vault Summit back in January.
Now, her twin sister, Hana Moll, has joined the 15-foot club.
On Saturday evening at the premiere Arcadia Invitational, Moll cleared her first attempt at 15-0 to set a new outdoor national record in the pole vault, surpassing the previous all-time best of 14-9.5 set by Amanda in 2022 at the Texas Relays.
Hana had already clinched the Arcadia win with a clearance at 13-9, but continued to move the bar up. She would hit 15-0 and then try for 15-1.75, but would miss her three attempts at the height.
The two sisters sit 1-2 on the all-time pole vault leaderboard both indoors and outdoors, with Amanda on top indoors and Hana taking the crown on the outdoor field.
They're also the only U.S. high school vaulters to ever equal or eclipse the 15-foot mark in competition.
Hana had come close to soaring over 15 feet in plenty of previous competitions, including at the UW Invite in January where she cleared a PR of 14-10.75. Through seven competitions over the course of the indoor season and into outdoors, she's cleared at or over 14-6 four times.
The type of dominance and consistency seen from the Moll sisters has been unprecedented -- and now each has solidified their own spot at the top of the U.S. high school track and field rankings.
