Thanks to everyone who came out for the meet... It was a real success with over 25 competitors. We look forward to hosting similar events in the future. We'll post some official results later this week, but some of the highlights were:

1 High school girl over 13' with a great shot at 13'6''.
2 High school freshman boys over 13'6'' - 1 over 14'.
5 competitors left in the competition at 16 feet.
1 Highschool boy over 15'6''.
2 competitors traveled all the way from Missouri to make the meet!

The "Travelers from Missouri" would like to thank everyone from North Central College who helped put on this meet. This is the 2nd time Brian has attended Pole Valt functions at this college and we were impressed on both trips. The P/V coaches, the 3 Winder Brothers and their Mom, Sue and her new Husband, and of course all the other competitors, all made us feel very welcome at this competition. Squiggy and Brian both had a good time and would like to recommend this facility to everyone interested in Pole Vault. Well see everyone at the "Rib fest" this Summer !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks
