IMG_1102-3When Matt Dillon started vaulting with us in the spring of his junior year, he had never pushed his athletic limits. When he returned as a senior from Needham-Broughton High School, we knew Matt would make the New Balance Nationals qualifying height, because when Matt is on, he is on. He improved 37.5” between November and May.

Our favorite Matt story took place at the 2016 NCHSAA 4A Outdoor State Championships. Matt shocked only himself when he placed 2nd at the most competitive state meet across all classifications. After Matt ran around the field whooping in amazement, Coach caught him and pointed to the stands. Behind his parents Chris and Ann, sat a row of college coaches waiting to have a recruitment chat with Matt.

After considering his offers, Matt decided to attend Gardner-Webb University and is looking forward to being a Runnin’ Bulldog at this Division 1 school.

We look forward to reporting on Matt’s future successes!…

Recent Enloe graduate Chloe Franks joined Pole Vault Carolina in the early part of 2016, and wowed us with her physical conditioning and focus. A former level 10 gymnast, Chloe hoped to make the indoor state qualifying mark in the pole vault, with a week left to make it happen. After some intense days of training, Chloe jumped the height and has continued her upward climb.

In the last meet of her high school season, Chloe enjoyed another breakthrough, clearing a whopping 12’ and breaking the club record. It was great to see that smile! She holds the Enloe school record in the 55 m, long jump, and pole vault.

With her awesome academics, and her performances in the 55m, 100m, 200m, 4 X 100, 4 X 200, long jump, and 300m hurdles, Chloe caught the eye of a number of college coaches. A recipient of the merit-based Gold Scholarship, as well as an athletic scholarship, Chloe is following her heart to Delaware State University where she will compete in the pole vault and the sprints.

We are confident of Chloe’s success!…
