APB, Where are they now?

When it comes to the pole vault, few schools in the WPIAL can compare with the tradition established at Waynesburg High School under vault coach Butch Brunell. The school has produced PIAA and WPIAL champions in the event as well as a long list of medal winners.

At last Thursday's WPIAL championships, Raiders senior Nick Patton won the Class AA boys pole vault (13-9) and freshman Marissa Kalsey won the girls Class AA title with a vault of 10-0.

Since the PIAA began contesting girls pole vault in 1999, Waynesburg has produced at least one WPIAL medalist every year.

None produced more headlines than this week's subject of our All Points Bulletin, Jocelyn Lindsay.

The first WPIAL and PIAA female pole vault champion, Lindsay once cleared 12-5 as a high school sophomore – a national high school sophomore record. A two-time PIAA champion and two-time PIAA runner-up, Lindsay went on to Purdue, where she vaulted for four years.

Anyone with information regarding Lindsay is urged to contact the Varsity Letters.

On the Yahoo front page under Sports, there was a picture and link to an article on the Timko sisters. It was just cool to see local kids on a national website.

The link below is the article:

She is finishing up her masters in physical therapy at Carlow College. She coached pole vault at Waynesburg U. last year but I think she is taking time off to finish up school and start her career.
