In recognition, Bolt was honored as the National Federation Boys Coach of the Year in 2004.

Endorsement review from Coach Dennis Bolt:

“Whether a coach or athlete, you know that sport exemplifies the trials of life.

“Only through hard work and dedication can you receive an opportunity to achieve greatness when the opportunity arises. Maggie Vaults Over the Moon by Grant Overstake exemplifies how a young person finds strength and inspiration after experiencing a great personal loss.

Maggie is endorsed by the Kansas High School Activities Association (KSHSAA).

“As a teacher and coach, I’m continually amazed by the resilience of our young people and how much ability they have, despite their challenges. They are our future, and they need someone in their lives to cheer them on, and to help them discover their inner voice that says, “Yes, I can!” as opportunities arise.

“A great story by a great author, Overstake’s experience with pole-vaulting brings passion to his storytelling. He brings to life the trials and tribulations that lead to Maggie’s triumph, and his descriptions of the historic Kansas State High School Track and Field championships is spot-on. Highly recommended!”

— Dennis Bolt, Head Track and Field Coach, Hillsboro (KS) High School.
