That’s what Hobart’s Nick Stack is hoping to achieve, anyway.
Stack, who reached the AAU Junior Olympics two years ago in pole vaulting, earned his second trip to the Junior Olympics finishing second at nationals in Normal, Ill. last month recording a 14-foot vault.
He and fellow Hobart High School teammate, Shane Tomaga, are leaving July 30 for the Houston, Texas, where the games are being held from July 25-Aug. 4. They are part of dozens of athletes from multiple Northwest Indiana track clubs who qualified for the annual games.
Stack said he was stoked to get a second chance to go back to the Junior Olympics and finish what he couldn’t last time.
“Things weren’t going my way last time I was down there,” Stack said. “My dad and uncle made it to the Junior Olympics when they were in high school so it really meant a lot to me to make it myself.
