Reed City pole vaulters hopeful this season
REED CITY — Dylan Langlois is a Reed City sophomore anxious to do well in the pole vault this season.
Langlois was working outside at the Reed City track during spring break last week.
Because track athletes have had to practice indoors for the most part, pole vaulters have had a challenge.
“I think I’m trying to catch up,” he said, adding that he was working on his swing. “I’m stronger physically.”
There’s four pole vaulters for the Coyotes.
“I think we’re going to be a pretty good (vaulters’) team,” he said. “The team (in general) is going to be great.”
Langlois also runs the 100 and 200.
He expects Chippewa Hills to be strong in his events.
Reed City coach Brent Michell anticipates scoring points in the pole vault this season.
“Kyle Voelker is a senior and tore his ACL and is a little bit behind,” Michell said. “Nathan Fasbender, a freshman, has really come on this winter. I worked with him.”
Reed City is scheduled to be at Newaygo with Lakeview Wednesday for Central State Activities Association action and at the Cadillac Invitational on Friday.
