Pole vault coach builds powerhouse program at college

When Ithaca College sophomore Meghan Matheny became the No. 1 pole vaulter in Division III after her performance at the Bomber Invitational on Feb. 1, the first thing she did when she got off the mat was run over and hug her pole vault coach, Matt Scheffler.

Scheffler is currently the pole vault coach for both the men’s and women’s track and field teams at the college. He is also a head track and field coach at Lansing High School, and he runs the Ithaca College Pole Vault Clinic as well as the Tompkins County Pole Vault Club (TCPVC).
