TOPSHAM — Run. Plant. Jump. Fly. If you did the first three steps right, the fourth is what the pole vault feels like.
“It’s the most amazing experience ever. You feel weightless. You’re just hoping you bend your body enough that you clear it,” Nicole D’Angelo, a senior at Maranacook Community High School said after she won the Class B pole vault title at the Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference championship meet Saturday morning. “The idea of flying through the air made me feel really cool. You can’t have wings when you’re an actual person, but you get to fly.”
