Madill's Burchett signs with Garden City track

Posted:
MADILL, OK -- History made in Madill as Shaliene Burchett becomes the first Lady Cat to ever compete collegiately in the pole vault.
 
She would have her signing ceremony Monday as she'd accept a full-ride scholarship to Garden City Junior College in Kansas.
 
She's overjoyed with the opportunity.

"It's good to think, like I said, I wasn't going to actually go for pole vaulting or anything, I didn't think I'd be able to and then when I found out I could I was like, 'Wow, I just did all that?' And I love it and I'm actually going to be able to succeed and do it later in life, not just in high school," she said.
