Small town Louisiana vaulter King reaching national and international heights Feb 9, 2014

While all eyes nationally were fixated on what was happening in New York at the Armory or in Boston at the Reggie Lewis Center, the best high school performance from this past weekend might have been brewing down in Cajun Country at Louisiana State University's last chance qualifier meet for high school athletes. It was more of a first chance meet since the indoor track facility at LSU, which is the home not only to the Louisiana state indoor championships but several annual invitational meets building up to the state meet had not been cancelled earlier this season due to delays in renovations to the Carl Maddox Fieldhouse. With the facility upgrades finally completed, the nation's top returning pole vaulter in Sumner High School senior Devin King was itching to get on re-done runway.
