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.

May has come to an end and many of you have participated in State Championships, NCAA Championships, and Diamond League meets are underway. It must be June! Schools out and the summer pole vault club season is underway. Some will travel to the Nike Outdoor nationals in Eugene, Oregon and others will look for the best meets that they can find all summer long. Do not forget we have a meet at the Vaulter Magazine Facility on July 2, 2022. Hope to see you then.

On the cover we have Rich Fox and his team of female athletes at San Diego State University. This is an all-girls team full of talented ladies that win. “In May, San Diego State University women’s track and field won its fourth Conference Championship Title in five years, and many of those crucial points came from the pole vault pit.”

What a cool little pole vault story by Daniel Bush, “The Coaches’ Kick.” “When I was a kid, I used to watch ol’ Mack’s dad coach, then I’d go home and act it out, pretending and wishing for that magical moment to someday be mine,” he said with honest humility. “When it finally showed up, it was so automatic and organic. It seemed to come from deep down inside. You know, later when I watched the video of that last jump, I saw it for the first time.”

Next month is June and our summer programs and meets will start heating up. Stay tuned. Fun to read and learn from. Thank you!

Matt Barry is back at it with an article about a podcast that has been catching people’s attention. “One of the parents in our club was the person who introduced me to the podcasts which are not just about the pole vault.In fact, these podcasts enabled one of our elite vaulters to have dinner and discuss life as a student-athlete at a division one school!” Have a read and a listen to these podcasts from around the sport.

Next month is July we get patriotic and tuned up for summer meets. We will see you next month for a hard packed issue of Vaulter Magazine.
