Pole-vault phenom has one goal left at Justin Northwest

At first glance, Desiree Freier’s bedroom is much like any other teenage girl’s.

The color palette is dominated by pinks and greens with framed pictures of friends and family hung neatly in place.

Once inside the room, however, one only has to turn around and look at the wall that frames the bedroom door. There, as neatly positioned as the pictures, hang more than 60 track and field medals.

“I think there are a little over 60,” said Freier, a senior at Justin Northwest. “I used to keep count of them, but I lost track.”

That’s understandable.

Over the past four years Freier has won nearly every pole vaulting event she has entered. Last month she managed the improbable, setting two national records in consecutive weeks.
