Vaulter Club’s Madison Kast Takes First Place at IE Championships
(Murrieta, CA) Saturday April 23, 2016, Inland Empire athletes from around the Riverside area met for the Inland Empire Meet in Murrieta, California. The event was held at Vista Murrieta High School and brings in many top athletes and schools from around the area. Vaulter Club represented in a huge way at these meets with five pole vaulters taking home medals and the overall Frosh / Soph Girls Champion.
Madison Kast won the Frosh/Soph section overall with a jump of 10’6″ as a freshman with Vaulter Club. The Murrieta Valley High School team has no other girl pole vaulters so this really helped the school put a spotlight on the event. Hopefully with her leadership and skill they will be able to get the once packed team filled back up again with pole vaulters.
Allie Gray took second place in the Frosh/Soph section of the meet with a jump of 10′ and leads the Chaparral High School team over all with a personal record of 10’6 and has the team on a roll after only jumping for 65 days with the team. Still a few meets left in the season and then we are off for advanced training over summer.
Nicole Silverlake took forth place with a PR of 9’6 and continues to press forward with her development and persistence as a Freshman. This mark is only the start for her season and more great jumps are on the way. No stopping now Nicole, shoot for 10’6 before the season ends.
Katrina Meier took forth place in the Frosh/Soph meet with a jump of 9’0 for her Murrieta Vista High School. 15 pole vaulters in total and the girls team of freshmen and sophomores are really putting forth the good fight for the club.
Maddy Duong jumped in the Varsity level of the meet and placed 4th place with a 9’6″ jump for the club and her High School, Chaparral High in Temecula. Maddy continues to press forward and plans to attend UC Irvine in the Fall.
Keep pressing forward Vaulter Club kids and we will see you all in the summer of 2016 for more training and fun! Keep us updated on the last rounds of meets and we will see you all at CIF.
