GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN  Former Ashland University All-American pole vaulter Katie Nageotte scaled a personal best 15'4".

The mark puts the Former Eagle fifth all-time in the United States outdoor history and seventh all-time in the U.S., indoors or outdoors among women pole vaulters.

Leading up to the accomplishment Nageotte stated that her travel day was not a good one.  Nageotte did not get in until 2 am. On top of that, her poles did not show up until 25 minutes before she was to compete.  The vaulter said she channeled her anxiety into her event.  Saying once the poles showed up, it was such a relief at that point that it was just fun.

At Ashland University, Nageotte won two NCAA Division II national championships in the pole vault in 2013, one indoors and one outdoors.  She was a three-time All-American at AU after transferring from Dayton.
