It isn’t just the thrill of victory for Jacob Munsch, Plainview-Elgin-Millville’s pole vault extraordinaire.
It’s the thrill, period.
Pole vaulting is one of those activities that most stimulates Munsch.
“I like the adrenaline rush of it,” said Munsch, who also lists dirt-bike riding as another of his favorite activities, and wouldn’t mind taking a crack at bungee jumping and cliff diving.
“I’m not afraid of much,” Munsch said.
His introduction to the pole vault came in the seventh grade.
“It seemed like fun and I’m not afraid of heights,” Munsch.
