Magnet junior Malik Butler began pole vaulting last year, and continues to make progress in the sport this season, cultivating the combination of strength, coordination and speed required for pole vaulting. He hopes to vault over ten feet this season. “Always try something new like I did with pole vaulting and you never know, maybe you’ll have something new you love doing,” Butler said.

Magnet sophomore Jackson Kutsche broke the previous school pole vaulting record to 14 feet and 7 inches after beginning as an outright rookie to the event his freshman year. Speaking about his recent break, Kutsche admits fear. “I was scared as I was going down because my form was off and I fell off the mat,” Kutsche said.
