James Mocarski, a 12th-grader, received first place with a score of 11 feet in the Boys Pole-Vault Varsity event during the 2014 Oahu Interscholastic Association Varsity Eastern Division Track Championship at Kaiser High School in Honolulu, April 5, 2014. “The feeling after you know that your jump was spot on, (is) the feeling that I try to shoot for every single meet,” Mocarski said. “That’s the feeling that keeps me into the sport, when everything is perfect.” “I can already tell the difference between day one and where we’re at now,” said his coach 2nd Lt. Paul Neidhardt, an arms, ammunition and explosives officer and maintenance management officer with Marine Aircraft Group 24. “It’s just unfortunate that he’s not a freshman and I don’t have three or four more years to try to (perfect his technique).” Mocarski will compete in the April 19 OIA Punahou Relays and still needs to qualify to compete in the Hawaii High School Athletic Association Championship.
