AUSTIN – Sophomore   pole vaulter Chloe Wall has made quite a name for herself in just short years.

She is set to compete for a second straight time as the first competitor at 5 p.m. Friday in the Class 3A state meet.

“I have total confidence in her. She seems to thrive in the big events,” head coach Jason Davis said. “I expect her to vault extremely well and have a great chance to at least get on the podium.”

The three-day event will be held at Mike A. Myers Stadium on the University of Texas at Austin campus.

Wall enters tied for sixth place on a height of 10-06 with Alba-Golden’s Kaylee Bizzell and Bruceville-Eddy’s Sutton Amthor.

Above that trio are George West’s Caroline Bellows (12-03), Early’s Tuesdi Tidwell (12-00), Breckenridge’s Nocona Swindell (11-09), Edna’s Kaylynn Grudzieski and Altair Rice’s Lauren Labay (each 11-00).

Last on the list is Eustace’s Whitney Boerner (10-00).

The sophomore made it to Austin after taking first with a height of 10-06 at the 3A Region II meet at Whitehouse.

She just edged out Bizzell from Alba-Golden for the top spot.

Prior to regionals, Wall ended up first in the District 13-3A meet, and the 13-4A and 14-3A area meet, both at Van Alstyne.

She won both events back in 2014 and set new school records in the process.

One year ago, Wall captured the 12-2A and area title, and was second in the 2A Region II meet at Tarleton.

She followed those finishes up with a bronze (third) medal in the 2A state meet at Austin.

Wall surpassed her own school record of 11-03 by three inches at 11-06 at Mike A. Myers Stadium.

She set a new record at district (12-2A) at 9-06 and then surpassed that by just under two feet at regionals.

Wall cleared 11-03 for second place.

That height tied her for third best mark in the state.

She was tied with Whitney’s Sam Redding.

In the top two were George West’s Bellows (12-00) and Tolar’s Reagan Mabery.
