Pole Vault - Sequence Part 3

Abbie Garlich, a pole vaulter on the MU track and field team, practices on Thursday afternoon.

Garlich, 18, rubs chalk on her hands before a run. The chalk helps pole vaulters maintain their grip on the pole.

Garlich prepares to run down the track towards the bar. Garlich, a freshman at MU, has been doing track and field since her freshman year in high school.
