Sydney Rodkey of NOHS has signed a National Letter of Intent to vault under the guidance of MSU jumps coach Steve Thomas. She has had the honor of being a member of the NOHS track team that has never finished lower than 4th at State, including winning State her sophomore year, and that has won Region 8AA all 3 years. Individually, Sydney has won 3 Region 8AA vault titles, has twice been state runner-up, and last year broke the AA State Meet Record (which was later broken by Caroline Bond of GAC). Her 12' clearance this season places her on the top 10 GA All-Time list. Sydney plans to continue her academic excellence at MSU by studying in the Wildlife Sciences, Pre-Veterinary program.
