Aspen Fears’ Soaring Victory

Despite the bone-chilling 2-degree temperature outside, accompanied by a brisk 10-mile-per-hour wind or even stronger gusts, the athletes faced the elements with resilience. Chase McFadden took on the challenge, participating in the vaulting event with the college guys on Friday. The following day saw a lineup of impressive athletes, including Tucker, Bennett, Aspen, Kylie, and Sadie, all taking to the vault.

Sadie Hartman vaults 9'0 to clear her initial bar.

Inside the building, a stark contrast awaited, as the warmth enveloped participants and spectators alike. The temperature indoors was so pleasant that a jacket became unnecessary, providing a welcome reprieve from the harsh outdoor conditions. The announcer proudly declared the event as the largest indoor meet in the United States, underscoring the significance and magnitude of the gathering.

As the dust settled on the meet, Aspen Fears emerged victorious with a remarkable bar clearance at 11’10”. Meanwhile, the resilient Sadie Hartman, a high school freshman, overcame adversity by successfully clearing her opening bar at 9’0″. Hartman had battled the flu in the days leading up to the event, making her accomplishment all the more commendable.

The competition intensified as Aspen entered the meet at the winning height, having already seen over 30 girls vault. Undeterred, Aspen not only cleared the bar but also secured the win, showcasing her skill and determination in a field of formidable competitors.

Without a doubt, we would eagerly attend the meet again. It proved to be a delightful experience, filled with excitement, fun, and a revitalizing energy that breathed new life into the club team.
