    The Warwick Valley VAULT BARN

    IT WAS “BIG-FRIDAY” at the Flying Circus VAULT BARN all day…as our College Alumni continued to soar from their short run approaches and our Warwick Valley Central High School athletes vaulted their real bars in their first intra-squad VAULT MEET of the INDOOR SEASON . The college/alumni athletes were impressive…better run mechanics…better posture…stronger and more focused than ever. They are meeting the challenge of the next level of sport. It was fun being back together and we will schedule 2-3 more COLLEGE DAYS during the Winter Holiday break. THANK YOU all for coming Back-to-the-Barn Wednesday and today!

    Warwick Valley High School Inter-Squad VAULT MEET …. WILDCATS OPEN BIG!!!

    The traditional UCS Spirit purple fiberglass crossbars kept going up all day for the Boys and Girls team of vaulters fueled by … “JOE TEA”. Senior Vault Captain..DANE SORENSEN looked sharp coming off his 10 day rest period from an extensive summer and fall program. Using small length poles to his advantage….hit 14′ 7′ easily and great bars at 15′ 2″!!!! Junior team mate…Jacob Becher..was super close at 12′ 1″ bar, using his speedy approach from just six steps…. Sophomore…Mike Moore..coming off his football success…placed 10′ 7″ to equal his all time personal best. These three boys will be on Coach Mike Potter’s traveling team this indoor!!! Watch for them!!!

    The Girls VAULT TEAM is also loaded and ready to compete at West Point and The Armory!!! Junior Vault Captain…KAELI THOMPSON is leading-the-way with spirited leadership and took the trials with a 12′ 1″ Fly-Over personal best and did not try any higher!!!!! Sophomore…Genevieve Reilly…one of the Wildcats top distance runners proved she can also fly… with her 10′ 1″ clear on her bigger poles… and watch out for the up-and-coming sophomore Caroline Fatta ..who just narrowly missed her 10′ 1″ PR bar!!!
