Scott Houston is probably the most acclaimed pole vaulter in North Carolina prep history. Scott currently holds just about every North Carolina all classification and 4A record in the pole vault. Just this past weekend at the NCHSAA state 4A meet, he shattered his own all classification indoor record with a jump of 16 feet, 6 inches. He also currently owns NCHSAA the state record in the outdoor pole vault as well. In the state meet at NC A&T last year, Scott set the 4A state record with a vault of 15 feet, 5 inches.

Here’s the video of his signing ceremony and interview with Andy Durham.

    I was surfing the internet with my name and came across your accomplishments. Very interesting….my name is Scott Houston also and I was a pole vaulter from Ralston, Nebraska. I’m 59 years old and graduated from Ralston High School in 1968.

    I set the Aksarben Conference Record in 1964 as a Freshman at 10 feet with a steel pole. My have times changed!

    Good luck to you.
