COLUMBIA — Vaquan Wilder had been feeling the heat all week, and it didn’t get any easier when Saturday rolled around, when it was time for the Class A state track and field meet at Spring Valley High School.
Strangely, Wilder, a junior at Scott’s Branch High School, didn’t have to worry about whether anyone else would perform better than him in the pole vault competition. That wasn’t his concern.
“I was my competition,” he said.
Wilder was the only one entered.
