Collingswood pole vaulter Fiona Basewitz moves up to all-time #11 in South Jersey history!

Collingswood senior Fiona Basewitz moved up to No. 1 on the all-time South Jersey pole vault performance list with an 11-1 clearance Saturday.

Basewitz won a terrific competition that saw three girls over 10 feet and two over 10-6 in the small-school division of the Camden County Championships at Haddon Township.

Her mark is No. 2 in Camden County history, behind only Jennifer Scott’s 11-3 at the 2019 Haddonfield Invitational. Scott currently vaults for Bucknell.

It’s also No. 3 in the state this year and No. 1 in South Jersey.

Basewitz, who is committed to attend William and Mary, had cleared 11 feet twice – at the Vertical Adventures Beach Vault in Atlantic City in August of 2020, and again in a dual meet against Haddonfield last month.

Haddonfield senior Robin Rosen cleared an outdoor PR 10-6 for second place (she cleared 11-0 at the 2020 indoor Meet of Champions at Ocean Breeze) and Audubon senior Sarah Parr cleared 10-0 for third. She’s cleared 11-2 indoors and 11-0 indoors at 2019 outdoor Group 1 sectionals at Washington Township.
