Ashley Robbins (TX) 5-8.75
Results

by Elliot Denman and Rich Gonzalez

Four athletes cleared 5-8 ¾ and Debra Vento of Freehold, N.J. seemed to be closest to clearing 5-10 ¾. But they don’t determine orders of finish that way.

When the misses rule was finally sorted out, the top-placings went to (1) Ashley Robbins of Tilden, Texas; 2. Toni Aluko of Burtonsville, Md.; (3) Freehold’s Vento, and (4) Debbie Martin of Apex, N.C.

“I really thought I had it (5-10 ¾) today,” said Vento, who has been ultra-consistent all winter. “I had the height, but clicked it off with my right heel.”

Sheena Gordon of Erie, Pa. (6-0 last year) remains the only HJer in Nike annals to reach six. Oh, and Robbins became the first non-Pennsylvanian to win here. Past Nike champions were Harrisburg’s Hyleas Fountain (1999 and 2000) and Erie’s Gordon (2001 and 2002.)

“I came in at 5-3 and felt really well doing it,” said Robbins, bound for Texas A&M. “I’m a little disappointed I didn’t get the 5-10 ¾ but that’s all right, I’m happy with what I got, I’m just coming back from knee surgery.”

Robbins went under the knife in December.

“There was placa on top of my knee and they just scraped it off,” she said. “It was arthropscopic.

“It took a while to heal up, but it’s a lot better now. It’s not back to normal, but it’s good enough. I just need to jump and hopefully nothing will get in the way.

“I liked the surface; it felt like it was very fast. It’s still early in my season.

“I’ve gone to (only) one indoor meet before this. I think I’ll do a lot better. I need that.”
