SAINT PAUL — Kaitlyn Schuur, a sophomore on the Southwest Christian/Edgerton track and field team, also teams up with her father/coach, Ryan, to get the most out of the pole vault.
On a beautiful warm and sunny Saturday at Hamline University in St. Paul, with her dad watching over her, Schuur got the most out of her Minnesota Class A state tournament.
She cleared 11 feet, earning a bronze medal, and said it was all for the glory of God.
“I feel like I did God’s will. Dad and I really wanted that third-place medal, and that’s what I got,” she explained.
Schuur has held the SWC/E girls pole vault record since she first cleared 8-6 as a freshman. She breaks her own record every time she goes higher. She reached 10-7 for a new record in the sub-section meet, and her 11-0 at state raised the bar again.
