When I first started track was in the 6th grade and in that time I was not allowed to pole vault for being to young, but in that time I seen a kid clear the bar and it just appealed to me that that you can go as high as you wanted if you put your mind to it. When I finally was able to do the event I was taught to the best of my abilities and was so much fun. When I became a freshman, coach Braun, our head track coach, put me through series of ways to make me better and even gave me a chance to jump at Cowley College to get some experience from a college aspect. In that time we eventually had to borrow poles from the college which led me to hold the league record of 13.6.
The things I am willing to give up and train for this sport is immense. I have been fortunate enough to win these last two league meets taking first and hoping to win the next two. Even though we won my training is still intense, because I don't like to give up easy and really don't like to lose. I love competition and to make myself better everyday and in the end you can reflect on what you did and make it better. In all comparison to this the upmost thing I take home is the memories and achievements I made that day and hope to make more in the future.
