Allison Jeffries Narrowly Misses Qualifying for Nationals

Boise State pole vaulter Allison Jeffries came within an inch of heading to nationals.  Competing today at the NCAA Preliminaries in Austin, Texas, Jeffries tied for 12th with three other competitors at 13-feet, 7-inches, which broke the Boise State school record.  The top 12 from each of the two Preliminaries advance to the NCAA National Championships next month in Eugene, Oregon.

Jeffries didn't quite make the cut, as the #12 qualifier cleared the same height as Jeffries but advances because of fewer misses.
