Due to inclement weather Friday, the preliminaries of the pole vault were cancelled and all 24 athletes advanced to finals, which are scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m.
Among the competitors are former Newport Harbor and Cal star Allison Stokke and former Santa Margarita and UCLA standout Megan Jamerson.
Stokke is the county’s all-time record holder in the pole vault, clearing 13 feet, seven inches in 2007.
She won the state pole vault title as a freshman in 2004 and held the state record for the best clearance for a freshman (12-8) until this season, when Santa Margarita’s Kaitlyn Merritt broke the mark in her first high school competition.
Jamerson is third in Eagles’ history behind Merritt (13-3) and Claire Hawkins (12-10).
She had a high school best clearance of 12-2 as a junior at the 2003 Serra League Finals.
Later that season, Jamerson would finish seventh (12-0) at the CIF State Track and Field Championships.
The Olympic “A” standard to qualify for the U.S. Olympic team is 14 feet, nine inches.
