La Crosse, WI (WXOW) –They say there’s no feeling quite like soaring through the air above a bar. There’s also no place quite like Riverside Park to achieve that adrenaline rush.
Pole vaulters from across the country are gathered in La Crosse this weekend for the eighth annual River Vault competition. Athletes ranging from middle school to college to parents took part, competing for hardware and self-fulfillment.
Three divisions competed Saturday, with three more scheduled for Sunday.
