Clearing new heights

CRESTLINE — Three pole vaulters, ranging in age from 12 to 18 years old, came together Wednesday morning at Crestline high school and left with a new-found confidence.

Recent Crestline graduate and Ohio Domincan University-bound Amber Schreck, Ontario junior Kyle Wills and Colonel Crawford eighth grader Sarah Campbell attended the Explosive Plant Pole Vault Camp, gaining a better understanding of what it takes to be a successful pole vaulter. The camp, put on by Mount Union pole vault coach Mike Zemrock, is traveling across the state this June, with Crestline being the third of four scheduled stops, including Martins Ferry, Fairlawn and Wooster.

“We started this camp to come out and try and help each individual get better, and we try to look at what they’ve done,” Mike Zemrock said. “We take what we do and how they do it, and then we try to help them by perfecting what they are doing and help their technique get a little bit better. We look at it, put our knowledge that we have into it, and just to to help each individual with what they are doing.”
