Chase McGee cleared a personal-best height of 15 feet, 11 inches to win the pole vault on Saturday at the Oregon Relays.

The Camas junior cleared that height on his first attempt at Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore. Jordan Lasher of Yelm also cleared 15-11 on his second attempt, but McGee placed first by virtue of fewer misses at that height.

Both vaulters attempted 16-4.75 but failed.

McGee placed second in Class 4A at the last year’s state meet, clearing 14-9.

This season, McGee’s mark of 15-11 ranks third among vaulters of any classification. Lasher (Class 3A) and Lewis & Clark’s Kyle Worth (Class 4A) have each cleared 16 feet.
