Our MSS-2 in May 2011 reached 17,000' going mach 2.3 at motor burnout after the nosecone/avionics snapped off. The projected altitude would have been 13.7km.

On October 18, 2015 the Polish Dart reached 17.48 on sugar.

The day before that, the Delft DARE sugar/paraffin hybrid reached 21.46km. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AB_TpaJn72k

A few months ago, the Sugar Shot team, now doing 2-stage, reached 10km with our first small scale rocket testing our avionics and staging procedures. Our next larger rocket under construction is designed to reach 32km.
