Matt Schwartz has vaulted himself into some rarefied air at Burroughs High.
During his senior season, Schwartz has continued to reach notable heights in the boys' pole vault. What has been more impressive is the athlete's progression on the school's all-time pole vault list in perhaps Burroughs' most illustrious track and field event.
"To be among the best pole vaulters in school history is an honor," Schwartz said. "That list is pretty impressive. It's nice to go to school where the record is pretty high."
The list includes a former Olympic silver medalist and high school national record holder, a CIF Southern Section and Masters Meet champion and numerous league champions.
In a season that has seen its share of amazing moments, Schwartz has put himself at No. 3 on the Indians' all-time list, just one inch away from the runner-up spot.
