Hey people,

For the males I am going for Brad Walker all the way, Go Dawgs! For the females, It's alittle difficult, because some tend to not stay healthy, but my choice would be between two, Tamara Diles or Becky Holiday.

I am assuming that, as usual, Tamara is not healthy. She was at Reno but did not jump.

Amy linnen is going to kick so much butt...jumped something like 13' 10" at the summit...her vaults were looking good
Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill. - Muhammad Ali

Talent in cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.

Hopefully Westlund won't cry too much about his ankle injury to jump something.


BTW, does anyone have the website URL for the NCAA qualifiers? I think it was something aol members...

April Steiner actually trains out here in AZ a lot of the time and she has a lot going for her. She's a very talented athlete, and i think she will go ondto some bigger heights this year. That and shes one of the nicest vaulters i've ever met, lol

Jennifer Bennett

Unread postby vaultfan » Sun Feb 23, 2003 2:25 pm

Here’s an article that appeared in the Columbia Daily Tribune regarding Jennifer Bennett of Missouri University: http://www.showmenews.com/2003/Feb/20030223Spor006.asp She probably doesn’t represent a serious challenge to the fourteen footers contending for the national championship coming up shortly in Fayetteville, but a 13-7.25 effort by someone with a HS PR of 9-6 does DESERVE some recognition. And this mark was made in a little all comers meet where her only competition was from her teammates and where she got very little support from the crowd. She certainly sent a message to the Big 12 that she’s the favorite to win the Conference meet next week in Lincoln. Anyway, she gets a round of applause from me! :yes:


“Jennifer Bennett’s face lit up with joy when she realized she cleared the bar. Then, after she landed on the padding, she lay on her back and covered her face with her hands. Bennett had just broken the Missouri women’s indoor pole vault record at 13 feet, 7¼ inches in yesterday’s All-Comers Meet at the Hearnes Center Fieldhouse.

The mark probably will get her into the NCAA Indoor Championships. Bennett barely missed the automatic qualifying mark of 13-9¼.

"I know I have it in me," Bennett said. "You have your days - your good days, your bad days. It’s a really good day."

Bennett’s mark is the best in the Big 12 this season and is the Hearnes record. She said she was aware of but not obsessed with the record. "I don’t aim for records, I just go," she said. "I don’t like thinking about stuff like that. I just like to do my thing."
