Vu Looking Forward To Saturday's Vault
The Daily talked to a couple Husky seniors in advance of the Ken Shannon Invitational this Saturday at Husky Stadium. One senior, Zack Midles, won't be competing this weekend as he rests up for Pac-10s, but senior pole vaulter Ryan Vu is set to go and very much looking forward to it.
"It's a lot of fun," Vu said. "There's a lot more people that can come to this meet, because it's local. My high-school coaches and friends can come by and watch. The way it's set up is very cool, and you get a chance to jump in Husky Stadium where you watch the football games, which is a really cool feeling."
Vu is a safe bet to make it to Austin for the first rounds of the NCAA Championships this season, but so far this year he's six inches off his PR which he vaulted at Husky Stadium nearly a year ago to the day. Look for Vu to chase 17-feet plus this Saturday with the men's vault starting at 1 p.m. on the East Field.
