About Scott
Scott Roth has proven to be one of the nation’s premier pole vaulters after picking up a No. 2 U.S. ranking by Track & Field News in 2012. It was consolation for Roth after placing third at the U.S. Olympic Trials, but missing a spot in London after not having reached in Olympic “A” standard. Roth showed promise at an early age when his vault of 16-4 as a high school sophomore was nearly 10 inches better than any other U.S. sophomore that season. He also won Nike Indoor Nationals and tied a meet record at the World Junior Championships. Also excelling in academics, Roth recorded a GPA of 4.18 while he was in high school.
