At Paradise Valley cc in AZ, Sky Athletics is an awsome pv club there that is really starting to take off. Nick Hysong, Adam Keul, Trent Powell (cc national champion 5.4), Dason Phelps ( cc national record holder at 18'2")Canadian womens and Mens vault champions, (I cant remeber their names right now), and on top of all of this they have the biggest pole vault camp in the world every summer up in Flagstaff AZ. Around 300-400 athletes attend. The head coach of Sky Athletics is Greg Hull, assisted by Todd Leeman, and some other awsome coaches.
Just fly high, and KISS THE SKY!!!

Hey adam, the candadian names you are looking for are Arden Harris and Jackie honey....just thought i'd throw that in there....not sure if there is a canadian guy in there though...not sure...
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.

How does Steph look since her face-plant on her new roller blades?

Tell her I'm going to kick her narrow load butt for her next time I see her for not wearing her pads! ;)
That's my baby girl!!
