Marlette boys coach, Coach Melissa Findlay said, “Tyler Izydorek has worked extremely hard improving his pole vault performance steadily throughout the 2022 track season. He tied his personal best performance at the state finals on Saturday, by jumping 12’ at the season’s biggest meet. This vault performance can be attributed to his extra work he has put in during weekends all season long. Every weekend throughout the season, you could find Tyler vaulting at the marlette track. There is nothing more satisfying to a coach, when an athlete like this is rewarded for his extra work.” He place 8th, giving him All State recognition.
