Plant, swing, throw, and push.
This is what runs through Joey Petrowicz’s mind every time he pole vaults.
The Westminster High School senior said it’s all a part of his strategy. And so far, it’s been working.
Petrowicz won his first championship last Saturday at the annual indoor track county meet when he cleared 14 feet, 3 inches in the pole vault, the event he has devoted so much of his time to.
“Over the summer I dedicated every single waking moment to the sport to progress as much as I could,” Petrowicz said. “I went from vaulting 12-4 at last year’s outdoor state meet to vaulting 14-3 at a county meet so I’m happy with my progression, absolutely.”
