GREENVILLE – The reigning OHSAA D-I State Champion girl’s pole vaulter, Ohio’s all-time best girl’s vaulter, and nationally ranked in the top five lady vaulters in the country, Riley Hunt was assisting at the Greenville Track & Field Camp on Monday and Tuesday.
“Riley is just a special kid,” said Greenville Track & Field coach Bill Plessinger. “She is going to be very successful in life no matter what she does. She just works well with the kids.”
Plessinger introduced Hunt to the campers at the opening of the four=day local track & field camp.
“Two-time indoor state champion, defending state champion, best girl vaulter in the history of the state of Ohio,” Plessinger told the campers.
“Everybody gave her a round of applause and that was deserving,” Plessinger continued. “She needs to get more credit than maybe some people give her because track is kind of a forgotten sport sometimes. It’s not very often we have one of the people in the whole United States here in Greenville and Darke County – so I’m just tickled she could come.”
