Former Granite Bay High star and University of Washington senior Scott Roth successfully defended his NCAA Indoor Championship in the pole vault on Friday at Texas A&M's Gilliam Indoor Track Stadium.
Roth won with a jump of 18 feet, one-half inch.
The performance was noteworthy because Scott has dealing with a hamstring injury that had sidelined him during the past month.
"I didn't really have expectations; I didn't expect to even be here this year," Roth said on the Huskies' track web-site. "So that made the feel of the meet entirely different. I just went out there and had fun, was relaxed and talking to people, so it was a really enjoyable competition for me."
