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.

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.

It’s March, and many of you college-aged athletes have just finished off your indoor season! Time to regroup and get ready for the outdoor season that will soon be upon us. About the same for high school and at the Elite level we just finished off the USATF National Championships.

On the cover, we have another article written by Stuart Kantor about the two high flying men's pole vaulters at Baylor University. K.C. Lightfoot and Riley Richards. Both of which have had an amazing season already and plan to finish off the outdoor season with and an even bigger splash. "From Kendra Phelps to Annie Rhodes.

From Todd Cooper to Bill Payne. Baylor pole vault has a long and stellar tradition of producing top-notch collegiate vaulters. This tradition has blossomed with the current crop of vaulters, most notably the 1-2 punch of freshman KC Lightfoot and sophomore Riley Richards. " Sure to be worth the read and give you a whole new insight into the vault world known as Texas Pole Vault.

2018 IAAF Pole Vault Biomechanics Report is the discussion of the month for Kreager Taber. She is so into this cool Biomechanics stuff, and you will be able to notice this fact right away. "If all goes perfectly in a vault, modern pole vault poles can return approximately 95% of the energy initially stored in the pole. However, with every technical inefficiency, more energy is lost. Previous research has shown that most internationally competitive vaulters can create 1-5 J/kg of body weight of net energy gain during their jumps to combat energy that may be lost due to inefficiency. " Man, this is some truly worth reading information. Thank you!

John Clark that Master’s Vaulter out of Texas is writing about his pole vault journey and we love it! "News flash for ol’ John Henry – two vaulting practice sessions in one day is maybe not a great idea." 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!

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