2009: Indoor: Stripling opened the 2009 season winning the pole vault at four-straight competitions. She jumped 13-9.25 twice, 13-11.25 and a season best 14-3.25 at the Tyson invitational, all NCAA automatic qualifiers. Her jump at Tyson was a personal best and tied April Steiner's school record. After a disappointing eighth-place finish at the SEC Championships, she rebounded with a bronze finish and a clearance of 13-11.25 at the NCAA Championships. She earned her second All-America honor and her first indoors. Outdoor: She picked up another winning streak, taking six-straight titles outdoors. She cleared 13-9.25, 13-11.25, 13-11.75, 14-3.25 and 14-4. She concluded her streak with the conference title at the SEC Championships where she cleared 14-5.25. Her clearance is an Arkansas record, an SEC meet record, a personal best and was the 2009 NCAA leader. She punched her ticket to the NCAA Championships with a bronze finish and clearance of 13-9.75 at the NCAA Mideast Regional Championships. At the national meet, she earned the third All-America honor of her career with a fifth-place finish and a clearance of 14-1.25.

2008: Indoor: Stripling cleared her season best at the Arkansas Invitational with an NCAA provisional-qualifying mark of 13-8.25. She won the pole vault at the SEC-Big Ten Challenge with a clearance of 13-2.25. She won her first SEC title and first All-SEC honor with a clearance of 13-6.5 at the league championships. She led a 1-2-4-6 finish for Arkansas in the vault. At the NCAA Championships, she ended the season finishing 14th with a height of 13-1.5. Outdoor: Her season began with the first of four regional-qualifying marks when she cleared 12-7.5 to finish eighth at Texas Relays. She broke the school record for the first time when she cleared 14-2 to win the vault at the Arkansas Twilight. The mark was the best in the nation at the time and also improved her regional-qualifying mark. She won her second SEC title and second All-SEC honor with a height of 13-6.5 at the conference meet. She was the first Razorback to win SEC indoor and outdoor titles in the same season. At the NCAA Mideast Regional Championships, she finished 13th with a height of 12-6. After declarations were announced, she earned an at-large bid based on her season-best performance. She redeemed herself with a bronze finish at the NCAA Championships. She cleared 13-9.25 to earn the first All-America honor of her career. At the U.S. Olympic Trials, she ended the season with a 13th-place finish and a height of 13-5.25. She reset the school record with a clearance of 14-3.25 and a title win at the NACAC Championships in Toluca, Mexico.

2007: Indoor: Making her much anticipated debut, she finished fifth at the Arkansas Invitational after clearing 12-1.5. She was part of a 1-3-6 finish for Arkansas in the pole vault at the SEC Championships. She cleared 12-0.5 to earn her scoring spot. She ended the season clearing 12-8.75 to finish seventh at the Arkansas Last Chance. Outdoor: She began with a sixth-place finish and a clearance of 12-1.5 at the Jim Click Shoot-Out. She improved to 12-5.5 at Texas Relays to finish fourth. Her season best of 13-1.5 came at the John McDonnell Invitational. The mark, good for a fourth-place finish, was a regional qualifier. She was the Penn Relays Champion in the vault with another regional-qualifying clearance of 13-1.5. She earned a bronze finish (12-11.75) at the SEC Championships and was part of a 1-2-3 finish by the Hogs at the league meet. At her first NCAA event, she finished eighth in the vault to earn an at-large bid to the NCAA Championships. Her clearance, 12-11.75, also earned her all-region honors. She ended the season clearing 12-9.5 in the prelims at the NCAA Championships.

2006: She redshirted the season.

AT JONESBORO HS: The Jonesboro High School team MVP as a freshman, Stripling's career got better as she matured. She helped the Hurricane to three conference championships and a state title while competing mostly in the high jump. She was a two-time conference champion in the high jump, setting the Jonesboro High School record as a freshman. Along with earning four letters in track, Stripling was also a member of the National Honor Society, marching band, Beta club and Mu Alpha Theta.

PERSONAL: Born Sept. 9, 1987, she is the daughter of Mark and Peggy Stripling. She is enrolled in the College of Education and Health Professions and is majoring in kinesiology.
