Congrats to Maggie’s pole-vaulting friends Caitlin Hawk (10-8) and Nick Meyer (16-2) of Bishop Carroll HS for soaring to gold medals at the Wichita City League Meet!

The high-flying Golden Eagles, coached by Denis Fraizer, are big fans of the teen novel, Maggie Vaults Over the Moon, which captures the excitement of the world’s greatest sport.

Maggie says, “Way to go Caitlin and Nick! And best wishes to all Kansas HS pole-vaulters in the next few weeks. Knowing the Highest and Best for you at Regionals and State!”

In the novel, written by Grant Overstake, Maggie Steele makes her own exciting quest to the Kansas State High School Championships, to be held May 24-25th at Cessna Stadium on the campus of Wichita State University.

The State Meet, which includes more than 3,000 athletes and attracts over 20,000 spectators, is the largest track and field meet in the nation.

From now through August, the author will make a donation to the Kansas High School Activities Association (KSHSAA) Sports Hall of Fame for each copy sold at the Watermark store, located at Douglas and Oliver in Wichita, or via the Watermark website.
