Garden City Michigan assistant track-and-field coach Chris Griffith is making sure the area’s pole vaulters will have a forum to show their stuff this spring.Griffith has spearheaded the formation of the inaugural Garden City Pole Vault Invitational, which is set to unfold Saturday, April, 20 at the Garden City High School stadium.
There will be both boys and girls divisions at the event that Griffith hopes draws vaulters from throughout the metropolitan-Detroit area.“We want the best vaulters in the area to come together at the mid-point of the track-and-field season so they can gauge where they stand before regionals,” said Griffith. “Hopefully, this invitational will draw vaulters from Dearborn, Livonia, Plymouth, Canton and surrounding communities.
It will serve as an Observerland-like event, but just for the pole vault.”The top six individual vaulters in each division will receive a trophy. There will also be a team trophy for schools that enter at least three vaulters.
