She’s a fifth-year student-athlete at Roberts Wesleyan University. King based much of her college search on where she saw herself continuing her pole vaulting career.

“In looking for a new school, I decided where it was going to impact me,” King explained. “I was going to go wherever I needed to go to try to be successful in that, and that brought me up to Rochester, New York. [It’s] very different from the Woodlands, Texas. [It’s] nice and cold here. I had never experienced driving in the snow or anything before I came here. So it’s been a big adjustment, but 100% worth it.”
