TFCAofGP 52nd Meet of Champions
What has been the most important thing you have learned regarding pole vaulting this winter? The most important thing this year that I have learned in regards to pole vaulting is the timing of the jump.
It takes longer to get to 15 feet than it does to get to 10, so I have been working on being patient and letting the pole spring me up to where I need to go.
Does your training for the meter hurdles complement your training for the long jump? Actually, the meter hurdles is very counter productive to the long jump.
The two events use completely different training techniques. For the long jump you want to activate the fast twitch muscle fibers in your legs. Because you are only running 30 meters on your approach, you need to get going fast as fast as possible. You do this by burning all the oxygen in your system as fast as possible in order for your legs to move quickly.
For the meter hurdles, if you use the same technique you will burn up before the halfway mark of the race. The meter hurdles is still a sprint event but not 30 meters — you want to use your oxygen quickly but not that quickly or you will go lactic and your legs will feel like jelly. What colleges are among your current favorites? What track event s would you like to run for a college program? What do you think you might like to major in at college? Is there a career field that particularly interests you at the present time?
Meet of Champs Qualifiers 2018-19
I would love to pole vault for any of those schools. Hopefully within the next week or two I will be able to commit to one of them, I still have one more round of visits I want to do. What sparked your interest in these activities?
I also play water polo for FCS. I have played since sixth grade and I love it. I am also a member of the Orchestra and jazz band at school, playing the trumpet and trombone. I like it because my instruments are loud and make funny noises, make me laugh. Fun facts — Robby Saligman Favorite book: Green Eggs and Ham, by Dr. Wayne Simmons of the Philadelphia Flyers. Favorite pre-vault pump-up song: Favorite place to visit: Northern cold climate places.
I love me some sprinkles.

If you are you and you are proud of it then you have unmatched respect from me. Murdock liked to call it. Bensalem has been indoor state champs in the past as recently as and CB West is the reigning outdoor state champs in the 4x8. They clocked an 8: West also clocked a Their 4x2 won a gold medal as well 1: It really shows just how deep their stable of middle distance talent is at this point. Off the top of my head, they have Fehrman, Claricurzio, Baker, Bunch, and Laatsch to distribute across the various events and clearly other guys are stepping up to be contributors.
Also making an impact were the boys at Boyertown.
etrain the aftermath: A Traditional Recap For Old Times Sake
The Bears ran This is another deep squad with potential to excel in a variety of events. The sprint medley is not an event that often gets love, but the boys from CB East have put a lot of eggs into this basket this season and deserve a shout out. After a great performance at Burdette, the Patriots decided to attack the event on a fast track at Lavino. The result was a big win and a new school record, clocking 3: David Endres split 1: And, oh by the way, Pennsbury-just a few days after their 7: Bensalem showed some nice mid-distance depth as well with their 3: They clocked a This program has an elite history in the DMR two state titles and a bunch more medal worthy runs and they look like they are on track for another performance in the They put together a sub 11 mark and continued to be consistently strong in this event.
They have a knack for sneaking into the state final in the DMR and, once there, they are always in the mix for a medal. The District 1 XC champs are ready to roll after taking their season through November in the fall.
Kevin Wagner also put in a nice 3k performance to qualify for Meet of Champs. The always dangerous Abington mid-distance squad left their first mark on the 4x8 this season, clocking 8: Also impressing in the relays was Haverford. They took 3rd in the DMR with a time just over 11 minutes.
Haverford was another one of my teams to watch in some recent posts. I think they are just beginning to scratch the surface of their potential as a young, up and coming team. The Radnor mid-distance runner has been in the mix at both the mile and the this season and looks very strong.
