Back to work after Holiday break. Practices are Tuesday, 12/27, Wednesday, 12/28 and Thursday, 12/29 at 5:30. Wednesday’s practice will be an off-the-wall practice. All practices will be held at Maple Valley High School. Practices are open to vaulters of all skill levels.
This week Landon Athletics competed in the first Michigan Indoor Track Series meet of 2012 at Saginaw Valley State University. Landon Athletic teammates Kirstie Wieber and Hannah Sailar placed in the top two on the girl’s side; Dan Emery and Scott Watson placed in the top 2 on the boy’s side. All four qualified for the state meet. Landon Kemp set a personal record and also qualified for the state meet. Way to go.
All our vaulters competed well for a fun first meet.
This past Sunday, several of our old teammates — Codi Mattix and Kassie Powell, now competing at Michigan State University — stopped by practice for a visit.
This is Kassie Powell first year at MSU while Codi Mattix last year at MSU finished first with a jump of 5.20m at the NCAA Division I East Preliminary Round and finished the season with a jump of 5.15m in pole vault at the NCAA Division I Championships.
