Monte Orchard returns for the 2018-19 season, his third with the Transylvania Track and Field program as the team’s pole vault coach.
Coach Monte has coached high school athletes for over a decade in both cross country and track and field, including 3 cross country State Champions. His body of work has led to a consistent output of excellence; Orchard has developed multiple high school vaulters who have gone on to win numerous region titles and top-10 state finishes.
As a vaulting club coach, he has developed vaulters from middle school through college levels, including at least four school record holders and one that ranked #2 nationally for their grade level.
Each vaulter that Orchard has coached at Transylvania has achieved a new collegiate personal record each season.
