Rancocas Valley pole vaulter Abby Boggs clears N.J. #1 and all-time S.J. #6!!!

The minute we finished writing about Collingswood senior Fiona Basewitz clearing a South Jersey-best 11-1 in the pole vault, we finally get results from the BCSL meet at Pennsauken and … we have a new South Jersey best!

Rancocas Valley senior Abby Boggs won the Liberty Division vault at the Burlington County Scholastic League Championships at 11-6, which matches No. 1 in the state this year – Hunterdon Central’s Suzy Lacombe cleared 11-6 at the Randolph Relays last weekend – and is a new No. 1 in South Jersey this year.

Boggs’ clearance equals also No. 6 in South Jersey and No. 5 all-time in Burlington County , which dominates the top of the South Jersey pole vault list.

Boggs’ previous PR was 11-0, which she has cleared three times – in a couple dual meets in March – one outdoors, one at the Bubble – and again at the Deptford Spartan Relays earlier this month. 

The previous meet record was 11-0 by Moorestown’s Jessica Kloss in 2005 and Moorestown’s Lauren Tauscher in 2007 and again in 2009.

Boggs also placed third in the high jump and triple jump for Rancocas Valley, which outscored Burlington Township 272 1/2-104 to win the team title.
