This is the April 2014 issue of VAULTER Magazine featuring High School edition once again with State Colle Area High School on the front cover and Rusty Shealy on the back cover. Most sought after print magazine for The Pole VAULTER and pole vaulting fan. Now you have the unfair advantage in pole vault!
Spring is here, although it does not feel like it is spring yet in many places, and another school year is about to come to an end for most. This means that many high school seniors have received their college acceptance letters and many should be getting, or have gotten, their financial award letters. Penny Hanson, our College Connection writer, has once again brought us some helpful information; this time about how college finances work and the different options available. If you are college bound, or thinking about college, this is a good article to start with. Don’t miss it.
Bubba Sparks has also brought us another helpful piece on vaulting technique. Like always, he has many more wonderful tips and philosophies to share. We always appreciate the honest and open teachings of Mr. Sparks and know you will find this article just as refreshing as his previous works.
Another member of the Shealy family is gracing our pages this month as we feature his facility known as Rusty Shealy Pole Vault in Columbia, South Carolina. His vision and creation are inspiring. This is a must read for any vaulter. And if you liked reading about Shealy Athletics, we know you will enjoy reading about this addition and where it is going.
And our cover story this month features a high school located in a very unique area with a lot going on. It is State College Area High School in State College, Pennsylvania near Penn State University. The area they are in is known as the “Happy Valley” and, from what we have learned of the love between Coach Sarra and his team, this is a very appropriate name. It is truly special what this team has. Don’t miss this one either.
Please enjoy this April issue. Thank you again for sticking with us. As always, we look forward to bringing you more great stories and information next month. Take care.
