On November 17, 2018 I shared the news with VTTR club members and supporters that our club was able to donate 3 high jump crossbars to the Mathews High School track team. The kids on that team have been unable to practice high jumping for more than a year – their only opportunity to perform that event is during an actual track meet. I attended a track practice and watched MHS athlete, Megan Johnson, taking the first jump over the new bar. I promised to share updates on Megan and the entire team. Enjoy this story from MHS track coach, Sabrina Myers.
One of our sophomore girls, Victoria Palaimo, just started trying high jump three months ago. She qualified for states in the high jump this year, and it’s all because of the new bars from VTTR. Without them, we would still be using a rope. I’ll keep you updated on how Victoria does at the regional and state meets.
On behalf of VTTR members & supporters, good luck Victoria at your upcoming competitions!
