Alpena’s track and field staff hosts clinic

Alpena Throwing Coach Jamie Bullis trains kids at camp.

ALPENA, Mich. — Even though High School Sports are not taking place over the summer. That doesn’t mean you have to stop training.

“Got to keep at it all year long,” Gabe Bullis said. “You got to continue to try to get better, do drills, do workouts. If you take time off, your going to lose a lot.”

Gabe was one of the assistant coaches in the Top Flight Pole Vault and Throwers clinic that was held this weekend at the Thunder-Bay Jr. High. Prior to winning the State Title in Pole Vault as a junior, Bullis received great advice from former Wildcat Pole Vaulter Alec Letourneau.

“He’s helped me out a lot with my vaulting,” Gabe Bullis said.  “Learning all the stuff he did in college and be able to comeback and help me is a huge advantage.”

Not only this clinic is assisting Alpena kids, but it’s helping other athletes in surrounding areas.

“So a lot of kids come that don’t have coaches at there schools,” said Jamie Bullis. “A lot of smaller schools in the area so this gives them an opportunity to work on those things.”
