Delsea’s Marco Morales ties South Jersey indoor pole vault record!!!!!

Marco Morales on Saturday tied the South Jersey indoor pole vault record, the Gloucester County record, the Delsea school record and the Morales family record.

Morales, a Delsea senior, cleared 15-6 to win the vault at the Coach Saint Invitational at the 168th Street Armory in New York.

Morales won on misses over Nick Mireki of Washingtonville (N.Y.). Morales had a miss at 14-6 but was clean at 14-0, 15-0 and 15-6. Mirecki had two misses at 14-6.

Morales tied the South Jersey mark of 15-6 set by his twin brother Nico last winter. Nico cleared 15-6 three times – twice at the Bennett Center in Toms River and once in a meet at Ursinus University in Collegeville, Pa.

They now share the Gloucester County and South Jersey indoor records with Dan Batdorf, who cleared 15-6 for West Deptford in 2008.

On the overall South Jersey list, Nico Morales is No. 3 with an outdoor 15-7 and Marco is tied for No. 4 at 15-6.

Nico Morales did not compete Saturday. Marco missed three tries at 16-0.

Here’s Marco clearing 15-0 on his first attempt:
