UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa – It’s meet week for the Penn State track & field team as the Nittany Lions are set to kick-off the 2021-22 season this weekend at the Bison Opener at Bucknell University. Ahead of the team’s season opener, we caught up with the Nittany Lions coaching staff to look back at their groups’ 2020-21 seasons and look ahead to the upcoming season.
Pole Vault: “All of our women’s pole vaulters have had so much success at both the conference and national level. Katie Jones, Hailey Zurich and Carena Nottoli are all contenders. They work extremely hard to rise to new levels and they really do work well together and push each other. Katie has been a conference champion and held school records, Hailey is the school record holder, Carena is a first round qualifier. They’re a really fun group to work with.”
