Vaulting To New Heights 

Posted by James at 5:59 PM ET

Those Eagles Cheerleaders sure are an athletic bunch. First, there was Kate, softball player and gymnast. Now, I discover Amanda W. is a record-setting pole vaulter.

From the Moravian College Magazine:

Moravian students are nothing if not versatile. Amanda Wynn ’03, a summa cum laude graduate in psychology and Spanish, will spend next year as a cheerleader with the Philadelphia Eagles. A record-setting pole vaulter and member of five honoraries, she was one of 17 chosen (out of more than 500 applicants) for the 2003 squad. Though her brother is a security guard at the Eagles’ summer training camp at Lehigh University, Amanda knew little about football until she got a crash course from her boyfriend, Ray Burgan ’04, fullback on the Moravian team.
