In this edition, we proudly feature Katie Moon, an Olympic Gold Medalist and World Medalist, on our cover. It’s evident that Katie is on a mission to break the all-time outdoor record, solidifying her position as the reigning Queen of Pole Vault.

We look forward to witnessing the impressive feats that Katie and other pole vaulters will accomplish this season.
Katie Moon, an accomplished pole vaulter whose story is nothing short of inspiring. In her own words, she credits her coach Brad Walker as her biggest influence and a pivotal figure in her journey to success.

Reflecting on her experience working with Walker, Katie states, “I looked up to him when he was a vaulter, and working with him has changed me for the better in every way – mentally, physically, technically, etc. When I started working with him, I was terrified to pole vault, and my technique would never have allowed me to jump higher than 4.60. There would be no medals to my name without him.”

It’s evident that the guidance and mentorship of her coach has played a critical role in shaping Katie’s trajectory in the world of pole vaulting. Her story serves as a testament to the importance of having a strong support system and the impact that a dedicated coach can have on an athlete’s success.
Abbey has returned with another insightful article, this time exploring the concept of the calm before the storm in pole vaulting.

As pole vaulters gear up for upcoming competitions and strive to reach new heights, Abbey delves into the importance of maintaining a sense of tranquility and focus in the face of potential challenges. Her thoughtful analysis sheds light on the mental fortitude required to excel in this demanding sport.
We look forward to Abbey’s continued contributions to our publication, providing valuable insights and reflections on the world of pole vaulting.
We are thrilled to have Matt Barry, our esteemed writer, back with us as he shares his insights on the upcoming Pole Vault High School Nationals in the United States. As the event draws near, Matt highlights the intense financial competition between Nike, Adidas, and New Balance, as they vie for the rights to host a true indoor national championships.

However, there is a catch. The three indoor national meets are all scheduled to take place on the east coast, posing a conundrum for athletes hailing from states such as Washington, Texas, California, Louisiana, Alabama, or Colorado. Will they make the journey across the country to participate in the competition, or will it result in yet another “east coast” nationals, albeit held at three different locations?

Matt’s thoughtful analysis sheds light on the complex dynamics at play in the world of pole vaulting, offering valuable insights into the challenges faced by athletes as they navigate the landscape of high school pole vaulting in the United States.

No fools for this April when it comes to pole vaulting at all levels within the sport! High school girls and boys are both on fire, and for the standard, these kids are starting to make, the 13-foot girl and the 17-foot boy seems to be the new standard.

On the cover, we have an article by Tim Reilly, and he has a young lady that has broken the high school girls record. Here is a rundown of the current situation. "Unfortunately, the mark will not be ratifiable as an American Junior Indoor Record, because there was only one official and they require three. "

Current Outdoor Records:

"NFHS Record: 14’4”Rachel Baxter 2017

T&FN HS Records: 14’7.50” (4.46) Lexi Weeks 2015, but Chloe’s 4.50i will replace this, they combine indoor and outdoor for their list

USATF Junior Outdoor Record: 4.45 Desiree Freier 2014

World Junior Record: 4.71i Wilma Murto (IAAF also combines indoor and outdoor for their list)

NFHS Record is the best mark made in an in-season HS-only competition. It has to be one of the school’s meets and has to have at least three teams. Beyond that, I don’t think they do much vetting. Looking at her schedule, I think all of her school’s meets should be fine.

T&FN Records are the marks that most people consider the “real” HS records. They count any legitimate mark by a high schooler through August 31st of their senior year, as long as they don’t turn pro."

We will see what happens, she is not alone, and it wouldn't surprise me if we don't have other ladies trying to break this record asap.

John Clark that Master’s Vaulter out of Texas and he never ceases to amaze with his adventures. " I started this pole vaulting journey back in October 2017, with my good friend, Bubba Sparks, teaching and training me. I had never vaulted before in my life – except for a couple of Sunday afternoon visits to Brian Elmore’s practice place the previous summer – and at the ripe ol’ age of 60 years, seriously overweight and out of shape, it’s been fairly slow going, at least in my mind." Like we said last month, sometimes you have to learn by doing, even when it comes down to an overexcited vaulter with a teenaged mind and a Master’s body. Good for you John, we love what you do!

Kreager Taber discusses the 2019 NCAA Indoor Championships. "The Birmingham Metro CrossPlex of Birmingham, Alabama hosted some of the nation’s best athletes on March 8th and 9th for the NCAA Division I Indoor Track and Field Championships." This meet did not disappoint at all, wish we would have joined all the rest.

Next month we will have our first Hall of Fame issue of Vaulter Magazine. Stay Tuned.
