Brandon Hierholzer is in his third year as the assistant pole vault coach at Long Beach State.
In 2015, Hierholzer helped mentor Michael Montgomery and Conner Rouse, who finished first and second, respectively, at the Big West Championships. The duo combined to post a first-place finish among collegiate competitors in every regular season meet. They also advanced to the NCAA West Preliminary Round with Montgomery qualifying for the NCAA Championships where he garnered All-America honorable mention recognition.
Hierholzer competed in the pole vault at the Beach in 2012 and 2014 after transferring from American River College in Sacramento. As a senior and co-captain, he was the Big West runner-up and advanced to the NCAA West regional. Hierholzer established a personal-best 17-00.75 at the conference meet and ranks 10th in school history. He also scored in the pole vault at the Big West Championships as a junior in 2012.
Hierholzer graduated from Long Beach State in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology with an option in K-12 physical education.
