Sunday October 16th will be our annual Heights on Halloween pole vault meet. Each athlete is expected to dress up (at least for a picture) and even recommend to their family members to participate in the festivities. All pictures will be posted through social media. The update on the meet is that we are combining both heats into one flight that will begin at 1pm. This is due to the lack of sign ups this year, so we will run them together. We look forward to seeing everyone and their crazy costumes! If it rains we will push the meet back, but just stay in contact or look for updates on social media : Follow us at :DC Athletics on facebook and dcathletics on instagram and twitter.
Guys and Girls this year we are hosting the biggest meet we have had yet!!! With over 40 vaulters and over 100 guests in attendance!! This meet will be a blast and we cant wait to have everyone out. Feel free to bring bag chairs and or tents, but we will have 2 10x20' tents setup for shade and about 30 chairs. Also food is FREE to vaulters, family and friends, but we do ask that you be generous and tip the cook:)

Carmel boys capped off the night last night with back to back state titles, 2015 & 2016!! Great group of boys to be coaching cant wait for next year, lets get a turkey!!! The Lipe twins in the pole vault accounted for 2 medals and will be back next year with vengeance! Congrats Carmel Greyhounds on pulling it out and Veach for winning both the 1600 and 3200 (8:58) back to back!!!!! What an amazing kid. Another State champion was Ryan Lipe in the PV with a massive jump of 17' sorrowing into the record books for Carmel Greyhounds breaking his previous record of 16'6" set indoors.
