As March dawns upon us, it’s hard to believe that we’re already a quarter into the year 2023. With the indoor season drawing to a close for the professionals and the college athletes, many high school pole vaulters are gearing up for competitions throughout the month.
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.

USATF Indoor Championships is underway, and we are covering the event as we write this editor note. What a joy to have our photographers on deck taking some of the best images available of the athletes as they clear the bar. Elite and College vaulting is red hot as we continue through the indoor season with a new American Record. Also, high school is just starting up and we will surely see some highlights from that as well. Boy has covid taken its toll on the high school athlete. Numbers are up, but with no time on pole the requirements to progress onto the upper round to state are extremely low. Only time will tell what the future has in store.

On the cover we have a Chris Nilsen as he breaks the National Indoor Record for the men. While traveling abroad there was plenty of action and time for these athletes to put the work in. “On February 5, 2022, Nilsen broke the American Indoor Pole Vault Record with a vault of 6.02 meters, 19 feet 9 inches. At the Perche en Or, an elite pole vault meet held in Tourcoing, France, Nilsen made history yet again.”

Huge shout out to Abbey Hope as she sends a warning to all athletes that pole vault can change your life. Many know this already, but just in case Abbey is driving it home. “Fast forward time and I broke my schools vault record won the state championship for my division and signed with a college.” That is just the tip of the ice burg as we follow along throughout her journey.

The Dad Hat - Now, don’t you mess her up! As I awoke one early morning this article came through our email. I started the first sentence and before I knew it, I was finishing the article. What a great piece by Dan Bush. ““Now, don’t you mess her up,” he said. His words sent an uncomfortable jolt of adrenaline pin-balling around my stomach. I hoped he couldn’t hear the plinking sounds of diamonds hitting the floor under my seat due to the extreme, squeezing pressure building within.” What a treat and many times in life we have been blessed, and this is one of those times.

Dylan Yarbrough is flying high, and we added to the title stating that it’s a family tradition. It’s pleasing to meet a young athlete at one of our meets and they receive an article from this young man. An 8th grader out of San Diego and a wordsmith at that! “My dad was a pole vaulter throughout high school and college. He pole vaulted at Los Altos High School, and when he was in his freshman year he jumped 10’0”, sophomore year 11’6”, junior year 13’0”, and senior year 14’6”.” Houston, we have a problem, Dylan may just out jump his father before you know it. Keep the articles coming Dylan.
