Niceville pole vault team wins national Powerade scholarship

NICEVILLE — A short video has yielded $10,000 for the pole vaulting team at Niceville High School.

The team made the 2-minute, 49-second video recently chosen as top in the nation by Powerade’s program Power Your School, which offers scholarships to high school sports programs across the country.

Former Niceville students Keno Manuel and Ian Lovin were the videographers for the project and said they didn’t realize what a big deal the video was until they were finished.

“I didn’t really understand the magnitude of what was going on, but I was just really happy to give back to the school that has given me so much,” said Lovin. “I was in the video production program all four years that I was here, so I was definitely excited to come back and help out.”
