Hodges takes vault career to Big 12

Lauren Hodges enjoyed competing as a pole vaulter at Ennis High so much that she wasn’t quite ready to leave the sport behind.
Now a sophomore at Texas A&M, the Jacksonville native joined the Aggie track and field team as a walk-on last year and is currently competing during the NCAA indoor season.

“I didn’t really expect to do this,” Lauren said. “I didn’t think I wanted to compete at this level, but the summer before going to A&M I changed my mind. I knew I’d have to work pretty hard to try to get a spot — especially being a walk-on.”

Hodges went to a vaulting camp that summer and said she had a really good coach who had also been a walk-on vaulter at A&M several years earlier.
