Story by Kristen Gould
Carlisle Academy in Lyman Maine held its first vaulting clinic on a bright and beautiful winter day in February. Although the temperature outside was cold, twelve vaulters showed their gusto and love of the sport at the Vaulting Winter Warm Up. Vaulters and their coaches from Mount Desert Island Vaulters in Bar Harbor, ME, Litchfield Hills Vaulters of CT and Vaulting Visions of New Jersey joined participants from Carlisle Academy’s Sport Vaulting program.
Katharine Wick, from Hillsborough California, and currently a sophomore at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine was the featured clinician. Katharine began vaulting 11 years ago with Woodside Vaulters in Woodside California. She has competed successfully at the Gold Level both nationally and
internationally. Katharine’s wealth of knowledge, combined with her friendly, easy-going style contributed to a day full of camaraderie and learning for all participants.
