Jan. 23, 2005

RENO, Nev. -- Washington State University redshirt junior Tamara Diles and senior Paul Nicoletti opened their indoor seasons with solid performances at the 2005 National Pole Vault Summit at Reno Saturday.

Diles, from Bellevue, Wash., cleared the second-best collegiate height during the weekend with her 13-feet, 7 1/4 inches (4.15m) vault. Only Arizona's Connie Jerez vaulted higher (height not available).

Nicoletti, from Snohomish, Wash., cleared 16-6 3/4 (5.05m) to finish among the middle of the collegiate men competitors.

WSU freshman Shelley Bunday (Bellevue, Wash.), competing unattached, reached a PR height of 10-8 (3.25m).

Both Diles and Nicoletti will compete this weekend in Pullman when Washington State hosts the Cougar Indoor meet featuring teams from Utah State, California, and Idaho.
