Safety rules in the state of Maryland means that this year's pole vault competition will basically be a rematch of the 4A Central Regional meet. Broadneck's Jaren Baluyot and Urbana's Yuri Brunner have both cleared 13 feet this season, although Baluyot gets the slight edge for winning their head-to-head matchup at the regional meet last week. Urbana had three boys all clear 12'2 and could rack up some serious team points in the event at the state meet.
