Before every attempt that Sky Schuller makes in the pole vault, the Coppell freshman stands by the mark on the piece of tape that she had placed on the runway, pictures herself clearing the bar, adjusts her hands on the pole, and takes a few deep breaths.

The ascent can be high but Schuller is not afraid of heights. She knows that the reward is potentially a place in the school record books. She accomplished that feat in late February on her home track when she obliterated the old mark by exactly 1 foot after she recorded a jump of 13 feet at the Coppell Relays.
