It’s December and wow, it came extremely quickly once again. It seems that I’m saying this a little too often. It’s the best time of the year if you ask us, we love the holiday season for all the Christmas Cheer. Every year it seems that Christmas and our Candy Cane meet is the staple of our club and magazine. Such a fun event with friends and family around sharing Christmas joy. You can’t ask for more as we add the wonderful sport of pole vault right in the middle of it all. If you get a chance to come and join us, I would do just that. We will see you all at the 2022 EXPO Explosion meet in Texas. Come and join us for the fun.


What a cool cover by the United States Naval Academy with all the Christmas spirit around this amazing team. Once again, they make the whole process so flawless with their enthusiasm and professionalism. But there’s more to this amazing team then what meets the eye. “Rory Quiller spearheads the pole vault squad at the Naval Academy, located in Annapolis, Maryland. The U.S Naval Academy is a federal service academy, and the athletes on the Navy track and field squad are held to high standards of achievement that look a little different than the usual college athletic experience.” What else can you say, this is a top-notch institution for military pole vaulting. Thank you for taking the time to bless us with your knowledge and insight. Sara knocked it out of the park with this article, thank you!


When I read the article from Daniel Bush each month, I get quite the chuckle with what he provides. Not only very well written and professionally done, but it’s also fun to follow along one month after another. ““He’s a stickler, dat Steve Stickler, ya?” I said.  “Lucky, he gave grace.” Arriving at the source of a traffic jam, a car had its hazard lights on as two men pushed it from behind.  “Hey, isn’t that Stickler?” Chuck asked, placing his gold medal on the dash.  “And he’s got Barlove with him.” Always wrapped in family values, hard work and discipline and we love that about his stories. “


Goals are a very efficient way to get through most aspects of life to include pole vault. If it’s New Years’, state championships, or league finals, it is good to set some short- and long-term goals that will help you navigate through the process of pole vault. Abbey sends in a sweet article how she sets her goals and the importance of doing so. Great read! “So, in short, my goal was to work so hard that I would accomplish my dreams.”


January 1, 2023 is right upon us and we will have the coast guard on the cover for the new year. Stay tuned for that edition, it will be a good one.

The world of track and field has turned upside down with the savage release of the Corona Virus, Covid-19. Just when the season was getting started, a virus came along and wiped the entire track and field season off the map. High school season is on hold, but the way it looks, it will be canceled as well. Across the board and to include the 2020 Olympics, all paused. Where do we go now and how do we bounce back from this situation and maintain what we have spent so long building. Time will tell, and some of the information is within this issue of the magazine.

On the cover, we have San Diego State University that just had an epic indoor season, and then it all came crashing down. “With the NCAA’s recent decision to cancel all winter and spring championships due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the future looks confusing for the Aztec vaulters.” These athletes are fighters, and they will be back stronger than ever for the next season.

The Covid-10 Corona Virus outbreak is all the rage, and the media cannot get enough. Kreager Taber writes about what happened and the whole situation that transpired. “On March 23rd, IOC spokesman Dick Pound confirmed that the IOC would act in accordance to athletes’ wishes, and that they would be delaying the Games.” What will happen when the next outbreak comes, do we do this all over again? Time will tell for sure.

John Clark comes to us with his travels and happenings with the sport from a master’s perspective. Although there is a shutdown, there is always hope in Texas. “Unfortunately, cancellations and postponements began to crop up shortly after many of those meets were announced, but Ben Ploetz was able to host an event at his Austin Pole Vault & Throws facility. A few days later, he decided to pull the plug on his second scheduled March meet, the Spring Fling.” At times it seems that nothing can hold Texas down.

The month of May will hopefully bring change to many parts of the U.S. and around the World. There will still be closures, and we will have more coverage for the sport.
