Port A Beach Vault. June 17, 2017

If you weren’t at the Port Aransas Beach Pole Vault meet on Saturday,  you missed some red hot action!   Temperatures were high and so was that bar over which the athletes fearlessly flung themselves.

DSC_0050 The best women’s jump was 14 feet and the men’s was 18 feet.  The dedication and effort exhibited by all the competitors was world class.

The coaches will tell you pole vaulting is all about speed,  but without that intangible “it factor,”   raw talent and quickness only takes you so far.   These guys and gals are special athletes.   Good luck to all the vaulters and the future world champions that came to Port A to showcase their skills.

Congratulations to Greg West of West Athletics Vaults Crew-  It was a spectacular event. Click here for results/info.
