Washington Twp.’s Gabby Vetere records all-time #2 pole vault in Gloucester County history!!!

Washington Township senior Gabby Vetere, who had a pole vault PR of 9-0 coming into the indoor season, cleared a lifetime best 10-9 Tuesday at the Bubble, the No. 2 pole vault performance in Gloucester County history.

No. 1 on the all-time Gloucester County list is current Villanova junior Ashley Preston of Delsea, whose 12-7 at the Bubble in 2018 ranks No. 7 in state history. Preston is a three-time Big East champ and has jumped 13-3 ¾ at Villanova.

Vetere won the event at the final SJTCA meet at the Bubble. Her previous PR was 10-6, which she cleared twice previously – once at the Bubble and once at Ocean Breeze.

That placed her tied for No. 2 in Gloucester County history with Katie Selfridge of Delsea [2014], Elizabeth Douglas of West Deptford [2015], Madison Mamounis of Delsea [2018] and Allison Bobst of Kingsway [2020].

It’s also the No. 7 jump in the state this year.

Vetere won her first sectional title last weekend and shares the top seed in Saturday’s state Group 4 meet at the Bubble at 10-0. Talia Hutchinson of Ridgewood [11-0] and Vetere have the top two PRs in the Group 4 field.
