NEDERLAND — Nederland has dominated the pole vault in District 22-5A the past three years, even taking all three medals in the event in 2015 and 2016.
This year, the Bulldogs were first and second at districts and took first and third in last week’s Area 11-5A meet. There’s just one more level for Alec Torres and Kevon Latulas to reach, though: the state meet in Austin.
They are the strength of the team, their coach said.
“The boys have done really well last few years,” Chris Theriot said. “We’re getting a lot of girls involved, now. They’ve done a lot better this year. Having a freshman win districts with Morgan Luke, it’s a credit to her coming out and working hard this year.”
