Yes/No: Three Women Over 13-6 in Pole Vault?

This week brings us to the final track meet for the Gophers before the Big Ten Conference Championships. Many local colleges and universities will gather to compete as the Gopher men host the Snowshoe Open on Friday and the women host the Parents' Day Open on Saturday.

Some of the events will be relatively tame because athletes are resting up for the Indoor Conference and National meets. But the women's pole vault seems to be a competition to watch.

How high will they fly? Take a guess on this question ...

Y/N: Will three or more women vault 13-6 or higher at the Parents' Day Open?

North Dakota State's Leslie Brost is the top seed at 13-11. Alicia Rue and Samantha Sonnenberg, the former and current Gopher All-Americans, are next in line with identical marks of 13-9 1/4. Another Gopher, Becca Pilkerton, is just behind with a seed of 13-7 1/4. Lauren Stelten from Minnesota State, Mankato is listed at 13-1 3/4.

To play our game, simply type "yes" or "no" into the subject line of an e-mail and send it to us at DtBFantasy [AT] gmail [DOT] com before 10:00 A.M. CST, Saturday, February 19th. Please put your answers in the subject line of the e-mail and make sure your full name appears somewhere in the e-mail. We will offer a bonus for participants making their 2011 debut in Yes/No - a correct answer will be worth two points for anyone who has not played yet this year.

My answer: No

Last week's question was: Will Trey Davis throw over fifty-six feet in the shot put on Saturday at Iowa State? The answer was no. Davis missed the mark by a mere 5 1/2 inches. Only five contestants answered correctly last week and there are now two players tied for the lead. Chris Rivers and Matt Rantala are the leaders with three points.
