Hello. Happy spring! We are excited to announce in this May issue that our own Penny Hanson got out there with Bubba Sparks and tried pole vaulting! At the age of 58 she has fallen for the sport. We are happy to have her aboard. You will thoroughly enjoy reading her account of her adventure.
Bubba is with us once again as well. This time he is teaching us how to overcome being stuck in a rut, or a routine. We have all been there. Vaulters, along with anybody else who knows this feeling, will gain much wisdom from this article. Do not miss it.
Our High School feature this month takes us to Montana. Sidney High School in Sidney, Montana is doing well in the world of pole vaulting. Their coach, Steve Yockim, has been with SHS for 19 years now. He is doing amazing things with his team. You will definitely want to see what the Eagles have going on.
Lastly, but as always not least, Slippery Rock University in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania is earning its name of “The Rock”. Coaches Bill Jordan and CJ Morgante are great teachers with a lot of heart. This article gives an in-depth look at how these vaulters work and the experience behind them. Encouragement is the best way to describe what you will get from reading about this school’s vaulters and coaches. It’s nice to know places like this are out there. Do not miss this one either.
Thanks again. We always appreciate our readers and supporters. Enjoy the warmer weather and we will talk to you next month when it is getting very warm. Take care! Doug
