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.

March will be full of madness; we are calling it now!

So far, the Texas Relays has announced that they will not have a high school section or individual section for their event. USATF Indoor was canceled and now all the hope will rely on the outdoor. We are now able to train with high schools and clubs together for the first time in California. Dual meets will be allowed, but so far, that is all that we know. Save the date, Vaulter Magazine will have High School and Middle School Nationals July 2nd and 3rd, 2021.

For the cover of the magazine, we traveled to Utah to see BYU for a photoshoot. The place was pumping with a meet as the snow fell in sheets. This team is one to be admired with some of the best vaulting in the nation. “BYU’s men’s vault squad is the #2 squad in the country, following behind South Dakota.” This team and their athletes are sure to impress in 2021 with an abbreviated season. Good job, Sara, great read.

NCAA 2021 predictions by Matt Berry with Pole Vault Atlanta. Matt is no stranger to our magazine and always has amazing insight into all things pole vault-related. A top-notch coach in Atlanta Georgia, his insight is key. “If I were a betting man, I’d say the SEC’s take four out of the top eight places in the vault this year with Ms. Gunnarsson standing atop the podium.” For the men, “If I was a betting man, I would say Lightfoot takes his first NCAA crown in a ten cm victory over friend Zach Bradford of Kansas.” There you have it, but there is more. Have a read and see who the spoilers are and so much more. Thank you, Matt!

Bubba Sparks is writing about clubs and the ability to save the sport through their dedication and optimism. “Here’s what I want to do; create an interactive groundswell of recognition for how we are being served and honored by these great leaders and facilities.” Bubba is on a mission and now is the time to showcase your club in front of the world. There are details in the article and an email to have your story. Thank you, Bubba!

Olympics or no Olympics, that is the talk of the town. The way that they are turning the pandemic around, many think there is a chance. This month, Kreager Taber is back with more information on a multi-National attempt to make the games work this year. “The Group of Seven (G7), a multinational organization including the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, and Japan, also pledged their strong support for this summer’s Olympic and Paralympic Games during a meeting in mid-February.” Hopefully, they can make it happen and bring all the people together for this event. Heaven knows they will need all the luck that they can get.

Thank you, Kreager.

April is coming and so are the meets for the Vaulter Magazine training facility. With the gap in the school system, we plan to host two meets per month for the next few months. Next month, we have Alisha Newman on the cover of the magazine and she’s no stranger to the sport. Stay Tuned.
