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.

February is upon us, and now we start to finish up the Indoor season and head for outdoor track and field along with the start of the high school track season.
This month we have Cornell University on the front cover. New coach and whole unique atmosphere for this pole vault team. "The year marks a big change for the Cornell vault squad, namely, the on-boarding of the new pole vault coach Derick Hinch. Although he's new to Cornell, his background in the sport is extensive".
John Clark covered the 2020 EXPO Explosion meet and a fun, exciting meet it was! "This was my second Expo Explosion, and in a somewhat surprising change of pace that may have contributed to my overall sense of unease and lackluster performance, I was not first on the runway this time, as my preferred starting height has increased recently, and the opening bar for my Masters group was set at 5-1".
Stuart Kantor has a new book coming out about Daylis Caballero Vega and her journey into the U.S. Pole Vaulting scene. "Ever since Daylis uttered the words, "I defect," her journey has taken her thousands of miles across the United States, with little-to-no-money, sleeping at friend's houses / apartments relishing odd jobs like dishwasher to earn a little money - the dream of competing as an American athlete under the USATF banner veiled by the innate will to eat and then foster the energy to plot the subsequent move: where to live and work next?"
The month of March will bring on all kinds of madness as we quickly approach the 2020 Olympic Trials. Stay tuned for more hard-hitting coverage.
