Olympic Quest / Lone Star Pole Vaulting

Coaches - Cori Picazo

Assistant Coach Cori Picazo began pole vaulting her freshman year at Texas Lutheran University. Recruited by TLU as a sprinter and jumper, Cori showed aptitude as a vaulter and after just a few months of sporadic training managed to easily win the SCAC Conference Championship for TLU. Cori then determined to focus more on the pole vault and her sophomore year repeated as SCAC Conference Champion while raising her personal record to 10'6. During that sophomore year she began coaching for Lone Star. A chronic knee injury and a transfer to Texas State the following year hampered Cori's training so she discontinued training and vaulting seriously but became more invested in coaching. She is currently a full-time student at Texas State University.
