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.

We are delighted to feature “March Hare” by Daniel C. Bush, a captivating story that delves into the experiences of a young athlete and his journey through the world of coaching.

Readers are sure to be captivated by the twists and turns of this engrossing tale, as well as the relatable themes of perseverance and determination that lie at its core. We are thrilled to showcase such a well-crafted and engaging piece of writing in our publication.
We are excited to announce that next month’s cover will feature the Texas Express Pole Vault Club, a dynamic and talented group of athletes and coaches hailing from the great state of Texas.

Stay tuned for more details and insights on this remarkable group of pole-vaulting enthusiasts. It’s sure to be an exciting and informative feature that readers won’t want to miss!

October is the month that reminds you of home and what you college kids have left behind. As you venture to your new world as a college freshman, you will soon realize the essence of what you have learned from your parents and coaches of the past. October is the month of hard training and putting in the work that will pay off in the spring. This is pole vault and what you live for, this is October. Stay focused and before you know it, you will be jumping in your first fall/winter meet.

The man of the hour is Rusty Shealy on the cover for October 2019. Vaulter Magazine and the pole vault world both have known Rusty for quite a few years. Not only was he Sandi Morris’s high school and club coach, but he also has the most state champions out of any pole vault coach known to the sport. “Prior to starting as a coach in 1998, Rusty had minimal pole vault experience, but when local Columbia, South Carolina vaulters needed guidance, he stepped up to the challenge for them.” A fun read and a real down to earth story of a man on a mission. Good job!

Until you’re a master’s athlete and you can learn a new craft at a young age (62 years), you will never know the true journey of John Clark. As John would title this article, “A life-changing experience”. October 2017 was the date that forever changed John and his outlook towards life. “Besides going to work at a job I detested, I wasn’t doing much else other than sitting on the couch every night, staring at the TV, self-medicating with unhealthy amounts of alcohol, only to get up in the morning and do it all over again.” We are glad that the sport has started a new venture for John and we’re thankful daily that he finds the time to keep us informed on the life of a Master’s athlete.

Tokyo is calling and soon we will reach the 2020 Olympics and see the venue that so many athletes aspire to pole vault in. As Tokyo prepares and builds a massive stadium at a cost that could easily feed the world, we are reminded of the scope of this four-year process. “Construction of the new National Stadium has continued despite numerous roadblocks, including budget constraints that significantly altered architect Zaha Hadid’s original design.” There have been setbacks just like all of the past stadium builds, but somehow, they manage to make it all work. Great read for sure!

Next month we will have a surprise and show the community what we are thankful for. Stay Tuned.
