Kirillov sets new pole vault record
March 25th, 2011
Senior Nikita Kirillov set a St. Pius X record for the pole vault at the Coaches' Invitational at Georgia Tech last weekend. His vault of 17'2" broke his previous SPX record; a mark Kirillov has now broken ten times during his four years at St. Pius X.
While the vault is the top vault of all-time in Georgia, it is not officially recognized as the official state record. According to Georgia High School Association rules, the official state record must be set in the state meet. The vault is the top-ranked outdoor vault in the United States this season.
