Gardner’s First Annual Street Vault held Aug. 6 behind Gardner Elementary School was a big success according to GEHS Track and Field Head Coach Brian McGee.
McGee said 19 top pole vaulters participated and 10 personal bests were set, including two of the top vaults in the state.
Jamie House, a senior from El Dorado, Kan., cleared 12-6 – the third-best female vault in state history and Gardner’s own Casey Bowen topped 16-0 – the best high school vault in Kansas in over a year.
“Our First Annual Street Vault was a tremendous success,” said McGee. “Several hours of preparation made the event special and a thanks goes out to Tim Brady, Bill Miller and Kent Glaser.”

Former GEHS standout and K-State sophomore Isaac Mallory returned to Gardner and impressed onlookers with an excellent 15-6 vault. Submitted photo
