June Male Panther of the Month

Louis Martinez

Louis is Wallkill's June Panther of the Month. Martinez is one the New York State's most promising Pole Vaulters. Just a sophomore, the sky is the limit for Louis who had a breakout spring. Martinez PR'd at the MHAL championships in the Long Jump at 20.05. He then PR'd at the section 9 championship meet in the Triple Jump with a mark of 42'8.5". But where Martinez truly shines is in the Pole Vault event. Louis won the Pole Vault event at the MHAL Championships, Section 9 Championships, and state qualifying meet. He set a personal record at the state quals, clearing 15'! Martinez finished second in New York State for Pole Vault, and 4th in the New York State Federation Rankings. Wallkill has something special in the works with Louis, who continues to train in the Pole Vault event year round. He is an inspiration to all student-athletes, and we can't wait to see him back in action this coming season! Keep up the great work Louis!
