From the beginning Raise the Bar Pole Vault Club members have dominated the local and regional market since its beginning in the Summer of 2012.

At the local high school level RTB has had more than 20 athletes finish with all-state honors, 5 state champions, and one 2-time state meet record holder in Alexis Romero (Wooster HS). Currently Makayla Linebarger (Reed HS) holds the all-time states best jump at 13’6″ set in 2017. In 2017 RTB had two girls ranked in the top 20 with Makayla Linebarger (Reed HS) holding the #4 spot at 13’6″ and Alysia Allen (Reed HS) holding the #19 spot at 12’10”.

The national pole vault scene has been just as successful as RTB has garnered 13 all-Americans, 1-National Champion and 2-Runner Up Champions. In 2013 Makayla Linebarger set the 13-14 year old American Age-Group Record with a 12’3 1/2″ vault. That record still stands today.

Raise the Bar currently has 9 alumni vaulting at the collegiate level. Some with a full-ride athletic scholarship.
