WASHINGTON STATE -- A Central Washington University pole vaulter blames Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines for losing a crucial piece of her equipment and preventing her from competing for a national title.

Athlete Kati Davis believes the airline's mistake robbed her of winning what would've been her third All-American title on Friday.

Davis said she paid Delta a $200 oversize baggage fee at the Sea-Tac Airport, but the poles did not arrive in time for her to use them at the competition in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Davis was able to borrow a pole at the event, but it was too short, she said.

Davis reportedly did get the $200 back from Delta.
