Tom and Mike Domozych are known in the pole vaulting community not by their names, but by their relation.
“I remember being at some of the meets in the spring and you’re running by and you’d hear one of the kids go ‘oh, there are the brothers,’ ” said Tom, a senior at Connetquot. “Some of the kids know us as just ‘the brothers.’ ”
And they have no problem with that.
“It feels great,” said Mike, a junior. “That’s what we’ve been working for our whole lives, I guess. We’ve always wanted to be the best. We’re always competing against each other. When we’re known together, it’s always a good thing.”
