Sorry this post took so long to get up, but it’s better late than never. I can’t tell everyone how excited I was to see all the vaulters at the April pole vault camp held at Titusville Astronaut. I saw some major breakthroughs made by vaulters that came from all over the state of Florida and Georgia. Alright, there was only one from Georgia.
The perrennial powerhouse St. Thomas Aquinas from Ft. Lauderdale brought a whole group of people including Hunter Moon, James Boozer, Nico Shepherd, Winston Perry, Mary Curran, Katrina Layman, Sarah Houghtaling, and Kaela Fudali. Deland High School represented with the big man, Andrew Kustodowicz, Natalie Shortlidge, and Patrick Oliphant. Titusville Astronaut was represented by Alyssa Bundy, Lucy Walter, and Aaron Cowley. Merritt Island had vaulters Mike Vani, Sam Adams, and Shelton McLean present. Flagler Palm Coast showed up for the last day with Kenlee Critcher and Cory Soard.
Individuals represented areas from all over the state. Amy Bauer came from Cocoa Beach, Alex Kazanski and London Enos came over from Tampa, April Rogers came in from Jacksonville,and alumni Lindsey Bott came by from Naples.
Speaking of Georgians, Boom Nuanual, made the trek down and was able to put on a pretty good show for the Floridians.
Everyone did a great job and I wish everyone luck at their upcoming championship meets. Alyssa Bundy won her district and Lucy Walters was runner up as these young ladies prepare for their regional meets coming up next week.
A special thanks to April for breaking everyone’s favorite pole, the 10’6″ 110. In April’s defense, the poleseemed to be spiked due to the way it broke right between her hands instead of near the sailpiece. So we’ll let April off the hook and try and get a replacement pole in time for the next camp.
Good luck to everyone and thank you for coming to camp. Hopefully we will see some great results. Keep me posted on how you are doing.
