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.

What an epic moth June was with the Vaulter Magazine Big Red Barn meet. We didn’t think that it could get any better after the first Big Red Barn Meet. We decided to do it again and have another event. This time it was called the Vaulter Magazine Stars and Stripes Big Red Barn Meet”. It was epic, to say the least, and amazing to watch. The National High School record for girls was toppled with a jump of 14’8.25” by Leah Pasqualetti out of New York. Next month will be more of the same with Piotr Lisek on the cover of the magazine.

This month is the last month that we will have Samantha with our magazine. She’s moving on, and we wish her the best of luck with her next adventure. We have a new writer already lines up for the job. This month we have Piotr Lisek on the cover. “As a young vaulter Piotr wasn’t the most skilled, and still struggles with technique to this day. However, his love for the sport, for that “rush like riding a rollercoaster,” is what drives him to work to improve.”

John Clark is back, and he has something to say about taking it easy. “That nagging off-and-on injury and the fairly soon-to-follow COVID-19 shutdown of nearly everything earlier this year slowed my training and vault practice way down for a while, and I sort of backslid a little from my proud P.R. of 8-6 last winter at the Bob Crites Invitational to 8-1 at the 2020 National Pole Vault Summit in Reno, to 7-6 a little over a month ago at a Mac Vault Academy meet.” Thank you, John, great article.

Kreager Taber talks about track and field starting back up for what may be a failed attempt. “Early this year, the month of June promised to kick off the most exciting part of the Olympic season for track and field fans. The city of Eugene, Oregon, was set to host the 2020 United States Track and Field Olympic Trials from June 19th-28th.” Great job!

We had a record-breaking meet at our training facility meet. On the cover, we will have Paige Sommers and Leah Pasqualetti on the cover. First high school girls to ever jump 14’2” at the same meet outdoors. History was made.
