Selman excited to continue Geneva’s pole vaulting tradition

AUSTINTOWN — Geneva girls track and field coach Bobby McQuoid is no stranger to the state track and field meet and he has found a home near the pole vault pit in recent years.

McQuoid has sent a Geneva pole vaulter to the state meet every year since 2014.

Ally Thompson started the tradition and collected two top-three finishes before handing the torch to Deidra Marrison.

Marrison gathered three top-six finishes and was the state runner-up last year as a senior. Bri Aveni made her first trip to Columbus last year, becoming the third Eagle to compete there in a three-year span.

Freshman Gabbi Selman is looking to continue Geneva’s pole vaulting tradition.

Selman competed in her first-ever district meet last Friday. She did not only manage to maintain her poise during the biggest meet of her career to date, but she thrived.

Selman collected a PR vault of 10-00 and clinched a spot in Friday’s Division I regional meet.
