Oak Lawn Community High School senior Madison Ryan has done a bit of everything for the girls track and field team during her four-year career. She’s run in sprint events and relay events, but her one true love is with the pole vault competition. Last week at the South Suburban Conference Red meet, Ryan finally struck gold in her favorite event as she won the conference championship in pole vault.
“Maddie is a four-year athlete and the complete package for the track team,” said head coach Brian Fiene. “Over the years Maddie has run the 100-meter dash, the 200-meter dash, the 400-meter relay, the 800-meter relay, the 400-meter dash, and the 1,600-meter relay, but what she loves is pole vault. She has worked hard over the last four years, and this year it paid off. Maddie is the 2022 SSC Red Champ in pole vault.”
