Kailee Swart Vaults to High Early Indoor Mark

The expectations may be high, but so is the bar for Kailee Swart when she's coming down the runway in an attempt at her highest jump ever in the Pole Vault.

This was the case at the Texas Elite Pole Vault Expo in December when Swart, a South Dakota commit, was heading toward the pole vault standards with the bar way up above everyone sitting at 13'5". 

Swart successfully completed the vault of 13'5" for a new personal record that currently stands as Indiana's best of the early season. That height also sits as the 6th best performance in the nation thus far and odds are Swart won't stop here.

The Cathedral Senior held the top seeded mark going into last year's State Finals at 12'6" before ultimately placing 4th with a vault of 11'9". Swart appears on a mission this season to not let that happen again as she currently holds almost a two foot advantage on the next closest competitor in the Indiana rankings.

As Swart puts in a "hashtag" at the end of her tweet above, there is "still more left in the tank." The Indiana State record for the Pole Vault currently sits at 14'0" by Katie Veith from Homestead jumped in 2006.

Look out for Swart to do big things as she continues through the indoor season and the rest of 2023.
