Just a scrappy 12-year-old at Destin Middle School, every Sunday she’d get to share the pole vaulting pit alongside her idols, Niceville’s Maddy Kish and Kobe Babin.
They were larger than life. They could clear monstrous heights. They, more than anything, represented all that Seekamp wanted for her high school future: a state title.
