DRIVEN: Cesenes vaults to gold at Tarpon Relays

Special to the PRESS

Marlyn Cesenes, a junior at Port Isabel High School (PIHS), wins gold in pole vaulting at Friday’s track and field meet, but her biggest challenge is her goal to beat her own personal best. “I got gold today, but I didn’t deserve it,” Cesenes said.

In her second year of pole vaulting, Cesenes continues to challenge herself as she makes her way to regionals and hopefully state. She focuses on beating her own best heights as she trains for competition. “I am my only competition,” said Cesenes. But
that was no idle boast. Cesenes continually pushes herself in competition with the goal of earning a college scholarship.
