Longtime Friends finish 1st and 2nd in 4A Pole Vault Finals

DENVER Grace Szucs and Alexa Oatman grew up carpooling to gymnastics with each other, they have been friends ever since. They ended up going to different high schools in Monument but even as cross-town rivals, they still cheer each other on. That was the case Thursday at the state track and field meet.

The Palmer Ridge senior and Lewis-Palmer sophomore outlasted the rest of the competition and finished as the 2019 Colorado State 4A Pole Vaulting champion and runner-up.
