Emily Savage’s career as a pole vaulter has taken her to new heights in more ways than one.

The Weston High senior has set several records in the event. However, her best days are still ahead of her.

Last Friday Savage signed a National Letter of Intent to attend and compete for the University of Oklahoma and receive a scholarship.

She becomes the latest addition to other Weston pole vaulters to compete at the collegiate level in recent years, including Emily Ando (2010), who attends Bucknell and Kiki Litvak (2011), who is at Villanova.

Oklahoma was one of several schools to show interest in Savage. Alabama, Bucknell, South Florida and others also reached out to her.

Two months ago, however, she was unsure where she would attend college. While competing at an indoor meet at The Armory in New York she was asked by a representative from Oklahoma to visit the school. After that she made her decision.

“It was really cool,” said Savage. “The team was welcoming.”

Yet it was not long ago that Savage even took up the sport. Moving to Weston from Atlanta six years ago, she had previously been a gymnast, competing with Gymnastics Revolution in Bethel.

Upon entering Weston High she decided to give indoor track a try. Upon the suggestion of head girls track coach Matt Medve, she learned how to pole vault.

“It was fun,” she said.

It did not take her long to make an impact on the team as well as the South-West Conference. In both her freshman and sophomore years she was third at the league finals.

For the past two years she placed first at the state Class M finals. The reigning South-West indoor girls track champion, Savage also set a meet record with 12’ 1”, which she exceeded with a win at the Class S indoor meet (12’ 7”) for another record and was first at the State Open last month.

Although the outdoor track season opened just last week Savage already having quite a year. In her first meet she set another state record by clearing 12’ 8”.

“I didn’t think I was going to make it,” she said. “It tried for 13 but didn’t have the pole for that.”

Reaching that height is something she will continue to strive for this season. Once she gets to Oklahoma she will try to go even higher for the Sooners.

“I want to be up there, jumping 13-14 feet,” she said. “I’m excited.”
