BLOOMINGTON — As one of the nation’s best high school pole vaulters, Zachery Bradford spends a lot of time looking for spots to launch himself skyward.
Usually, it’s a box to plant his pole at the end of a runway. Most recently, it was Kansas University, the school where the Bloomington High phenom has committed to attend.
“I went on a visit and it just felt like the school to go to,” Bradford said. “They have one of the greatest coaches in the nation in Tom Hays. The vault group seems like it would be amazing to train with.
