Stacy Dragila took center stage at the Millrose Games Friday night, and performed like the star of the show should, breaking her world indoor pole vault record. Dragila, winner of the first women’s Olympic pole vault title, soared 15 feet, 2 1/2 inches on her second try, breaking the mark of 15-1 3/4 she set last year in the USA Championships in Atlanta.
