Pole vaulters were great, music was bad

Dear Editor:

What a wonderful event took place in Lyndonville, New York tonight, May 31.

Young and old were able to watch a sanctioned Pole Vaulting Meet. Six athletes competed at the White Birch Golf Course. One was the 2012 Olympic Gold Medal winner Jenn Suhr. What an amazing sight to witness. These women are world champions and we were able to witness them in action.

The only problem that I had was the music. I am not a prude but the vulgar wording in much of the music definitely was not for the ears of the young and the old.  Actually it was not appropriate in my opinion for anyone.  I do not have a problem with rap, but this was just vulgar.  I hope next week they are a little more selective with the lyrics.

Again what a wonderful evening, and it was very exciting. Way to go White Birch Country Club. You are a class act.

Editor’s note: Jenn Suhr and five other vaulters are scheduled for another meet 5:30 p.m. Friday at the White Birch.
