Athlete of the Week: SPASH's Jesse Johnson

Posted:

 

Jesse Johnson from Stevens Point took home the Wisconsin Valley Conference title in the pole vault on Tuesday.  
Johnson vaulted 15 feet at the WVC relays to help his team set a school record of 38'6".
That vault also put him as the number 1 vaulter in Wisconsin as he is the returning state champion. 
A step closer to being on his way to another championship is most recently he won the Kiwanis meet with a 14'6" vault.
The standout senior has already committed to the University of Wisconsin next year, but Jesse isn't looking that far ahead.  He still has another state championship meet coming up and his goals are set on winning that.
