Via The Cincinnati Enquirer:

Elder senior Joe Ratterman, last year’s regional pole vault runner-up and the 11th-place state finisher, cleared 15 feet to win his title.

“Finishing 11th in the state has been more motivation for me than finishing second in the region,” said Ratterman, who won despite dealing with a stress fracture in his left shin that cropped up right at the start of the season.
