The list of standout female athletes to pole vault for Sidney High School goes on and on. Myka Steinbeisser intends to officially add her name to the list later this month.
Sidney vaulters have left their marks all over the Class A record books. Ben-Youssef set the class-record vault of 12 feet, 4 inches in 2000. Later, the Eagles combined to win seven consecutive pole vaulting titles from 2007-13, with Bawden (2009, 2010) and Gorder (2012, 2013) each claiming two gold medals.
