Unread postby grandevaulter » Fri Jul 08, 2016 12:30 am

This year promises to be a tremendous clinic that summarizes Alan Launder and John Gormely's book "From beginner to Bubka and Isenbayeva too". Saugatuck High School coming off it's third State Championship season in four years (and a runner up) will be the site of the memorial clinic honoring Alan Launder.
