Maggie Vaults Over the Moon is a source of inspiration for Kristen Harris, a small-town Kansan who soared to record heights this past season as a pole-vaulter at Tabor College.
Kristen’s accomplishments mirror her favorite fictional pole-vaulter Maggie Steele, a gutsy farm girl from fictional Grain Valley, Kan., who soars to new heights as a pole-vaulter.
“Reading Maggie before the track season gave me the inspiration and drive to compete for God’s glory,” Kristen said. “The book really captures the emotion and thrill of pole-vaulting and I was blessed to feel the way Maggie felt in real life.”
Kristen’s “Maggie Moment” happened at the recent KCAC Outdoor Track and Field Championships. With the crowd cheering, she stood on the runway, preparing to attempt a new school and KCAC record of 11 feet.
