Big trip, big state and a huge amount of fun!
Vaulter Club made the decision to take a trip to Belton, Texas, for the 2018 Texas EXPO Explosion. Famed as being the 2nd largest indoor meet in the United States. We also heard many of the coaches and teams call this the best kept secret when it comes to meets.
As a finisher to
Some of the notables that we noticed coming out of the meet was the ability to actually move and get the vaulting done. Not to mention it was slower paced, exciting and well ran. USATF officials at each and every pole vault pit, a friendly atmosphere and plenty of outstanding pole vaulting to go around. The winners all received a medal at the stand and the attention to detail was noticeable.
We will definitely be going again next year! Easy access to the EXPO center, great cost of living when you try and purchase gas or hotels. Overall a great experience and a fun finish to your pole vault year.
