AKRON >> Life as an NCAA champion for Matt Ludwig doesn’t mean resting on the accomplishment.
Winning the NCAA Outdoor pole vault event last spring for the University of Akron was life-changing in some respects, but it hasn’t changed the way Ludwig goes about his daily routine.
That’s because the Lake Catholic graduate goes as hard in practice as he does in meets. It’s done with a purpose — to strive for greatness. That means putting in the work on a daily basis — not to repeat as NCAA champion — but continuing trying to master the tricky trade of pole vaulting.
