Lacy Flack is back in Pueblo again trying to establish herself in the community.

She was Lacy Harris when she first hit town as a college freshman bent on becoming one of the top female pole vaulters in the U.S.

The vaulting bug first bit her as a junior high school athlete in Cimarron, N.M., competing against high school vaulters. Flack went on to win a New Mexico state title in the 100-meter dash and a silver medal in the pole vault.
