Caleigh Lofstead only needed two vaults to become district champion Monday, at McKenzie Stadium. The Camas High School junior set her sights on a personal best height of 13 feet, but came up just centimeters short. “I barely hit the bar coming down,” Lofstead said. “I’ve been trying to get to 13 feet for the last few meets. This is the closest I’ve been to it all season. For it to come at state would be a good time.” Lofstead is a three-time district champion in the pole vault. She hopes to improve on her third-place finish at state this weekend, at Mt. Tahoma High School in Tacoma. “Back when I started pole vaulting, I never thought this could be possible,” Lofstead said. “My goal has always been just to make it to state. Becoming district champion is the cherry on top.”
