Coming into her senior year, Malibu High School graduate Joie Cosentino was done with track and field. After three years of pole vaulting on the girls team, she’d lost interest and was only attending practices to hang out with her friends.
But at last year’s track banquet, MHS jump coach Mike Halualani walked up to Cosentino and attempted to convince her to return to the team as a jumper rather than a pole vaulter. Halualani, who was also undecided about returning to the track team, cut a deal with Cosentino that night.
