Editor’s Note: Nurturing Excellence in Pole Vaulting

In this edition, we explore the vibrant world of pole vaulting, particularly focusing on the distinguished program at the University of Kansas (KU). Doug Bouma takes us on a comprehensive journey, unveiling the rich tapestry of history, talent, and camaraderie that defines this exhilarating discipline.

Unveiling the Dynamics of Pole Vaulting at Kansas University: A Comprehensive Insight by Doug Bouma delves into the intricate workings of KU’s pole vaulting program. From the foundational elements embodied by the university’s emblematic mascot, the Jayhawk, to the coaching legacy of stalwart Tom Hays, Bouma paints a vivid picture of excellence and dedication. The program’s commitment to unity, recruitment standards, and state-of-the-art equipment further solidifies its position among the nation’s elite.

In Hydration and the Sport of Pole Vault, Bouma underscores the critical importance of hydration for pole vaulters’ strength, endurance, and overall well-being. By emphasizing the detrimental effects of dehydration and providing actionable hydration guidelines, this article serves as a vital resource for athletes striving for peak performance.

As we navigate the realms of athleticism, recovery, and optimal performance, our meticulous exploration offers a compelling narrative of dedication, resilience, and triumph.

The crazy month of May is upon us and that means prelims, finals and state for the state of California. Maybe it’s the same for your state, but we love the fact that by June 1st, 2022 state will be over with and on to summer fun.

“Gary Muhammad has some star vaulters on his hands, and they come from his own family. His 15 year old daughter Jathiyah is a sophomore and his 14 year old son Khaliq is a freshman at Dublin High School in northern California. These young athletes are putting up some amazing marks at young ages. Jathiyah has cleared 13’7” as a sophomore and Khaliq has gone 15’4”, making him the top freshman vaulter in the United States. These superstar siblings have been coached up by their father, and now are making their debut as some of the most successful young vaulters of our day.“

“It is no secret that the Mondschein family is seen as royalty in the world of track and field. Irving Mondschein, who started their ongoing legacy, was an Olympic decathlete in 1948, ranked third in the world for high jump in outdoor of 1947 and 1949, and the head of three generations of track and field stars.”

“Nearing the end of his high school career, Homan had a track scholarship to Southeast Missouri State University. He was on track to achieve his dreams of becoming an Olympic athlete. However, when his mother became ill, he decided to choose family over his passion and take a few years off from the sport. He stayed at home and took care of his mom. For those years, Homan believed he was done with pole vaulting and hung up his spikes. After deciding that becoming an EMT was not for him, he worked at a call center job for a while.”

Next month is June and our summer programs and meets will start heating up. Stay tuned.
