The Ohio State pole vaulting crew is having a wonderful 2018 indoor season. Take a look at a behind the scenes look at one of their preseason practices. The video was produced by one of our own athletes, the multi-skilled Zack Bazile, who by the way, owns the best long jump in the NCAA this season.

Cole Gorski has set the school record and then re-upped his mark twice this season combining to record three personal bests. His career-best mark right now sits at 5.47m (17-11.25) which ranks No. 13 in the NCAA. Below is his then personal-best clearance of 5.45m at the Meyo Invitational (Feb. 2).

.@c_gorski28 is the top collegiate finisher in the pole vault with a PR of 5.45m! The mark is the 11th best in the nation this year and it improves upon his school record by 4 inches! #GoBucks

On the women’s side, Madison Roberts most recently set her school record at the Meyo invitational as well. She cleared 4.02m (13-2.25) for her school record.

.@mroberts014 clears a new personal best height of 4.02m (13-2.25) to improve her previous school record in the pole vault! #GoBucks
