End of high school track season

We had a good year at Sequim High Track pole vaulting. We carried forward two vaulters from last year. They did well, but didn’t have as many practice sessions and it showed in their performance, achieving the same heights as last year. Unfortunately, this year that wasn’t enough to get to state. We had one new sophmore girl, 3 freshman girls, and 3 freshman boys start this year. All did quite well for their first year. One freshman girl broke the old freshman record by one foot. We sent 4 vaulters to subdistrict and 3 vaulters to district. Good job kids!

I haven’t been vaulting much, as I’ve been working with the vaulters and repairing my runway at home. I had the box sandblasted and powdercoated and had some bad stretches of the wooden runway that had to have the surface replaced. I’m nearly through and getting ready to resume regular practice at home. I’ve learned a few more tips from Brad Moore, the coach here at Sequim, and hope to apply them in my practice. My first meet this year should be the Puget Sound Senior Games at West Seattle Stadium. I have no idea how I’ll do, but I’ll start practicing now and see if I can get up to speed before June 1st. I’m a little behind last year’s schedule so we’ll see.
