KC Lightfoot. All-American.

KC Lightfoot, a recent LSHS graduate, climbs to even greater heights as his pole vaulting career has continued at Baylor University.

Not even two full months into season Lightfoot became the Big 12 Champion, broke the Baylor indoor pole vault school record with a vault of 18-7.5 (5.68m), and was named Big 12 Outstanding Freshman of the Year. 

And his impressive performance didn’t stop there. Lightfoot ended his freshman indoor season at the NCAA Indoor Championships where he vaulted his way to earning the status of All-American.
