Kristine Felix wins Pac-12 women's pole vault title

May 13, 2013 - Robert Collias
While her state record went down on Friday to former Baldwin teammate Amber Kozaki, Washington State freshman Kristine Felix won the Pac-12 women's pole vault title Sunday with a leap of 13-feet-4 1/4.

"It was a little shaky because the wait was really long because there were 21 vaulters," Felix said to blogger Paul Merca in the above link. "I definitely stayed confident and relaxed and took a deep breath every time I jumped. I think the biggest thing that helped today was being really cool. I had a towel soaked with really cold water, I had a spray fan and stayed hydrated and I stayed in the shade all day yesterday. I started today at my PR height before college and I was scared to start there but I trusted Coach (Matt) McGee. I'm definitely more confident in the 13-feet range now."

Here is a link to the Pac-12 women's pole vault results (scroll down to Sunday, click on event 113), where Kozaki's 13-0 at the HHSAA state meet would have placed eighth, a quarter inch from fourth.
