Lindsey Armentrout: hurdling into Fox sports history

She is a pure perfectionist. The name Amentrout has been a staple in King George High School sports for the last four years. While each of the Armentrout triplets - Lindsey, Carley and Haley - have distinguished themselves in their chosen sports disciplines, Lindsey has stepped outside the box to go on a journey that only a few athletes have taken before.
Whether it’s track & field (winter, spring), cross country, soccer or as place kicker on the varsity football team, Lindsey has risen above the fray to make a lasting impact in the world of area high school sports.

“Lindsey happens to be one of the most versatile athletes we’ve ever had.”

— Rudy Pekarek



As a place kicker, the senior became an instant success as she connected with 90% of her extra point attempts. “It was weird at first because I was the girl, and I wasn’t used to being on a all-guys-team,” Lindsey said. “I felt that I was under a lot of pressure, because I was a girl, and someone would say, a guy could have done it better.”
As Lindsey’s assistant track & field coach, and varsity head football, and special team’s coach, Jeff Smith has been impressed with Lindsey’s work ethic since her freshman year. “Lindsey is one of the hardest working people I have ever seen,” Smith said. “She is one of those rare athletes that wants perfection, and she will tear her body down to make sure everything is right, because she will not accept anything sub-par.”
From the first day of football training camp, Lindsey blended in. “It was one of my proudest moments to see those young men come together and protect her,” Smith said. “From day one to the last game she was treated like everybody else—she had become one of the guys.”

Lindsey used her time wisely, as she ran from cross-country practice to football practice, while never sacrificing her academics. To date, she is the first female place kicker in Fox football history.

Currently her focus is winter track & field. Most recently, at the Potomac-Brook Pointe Invitational, Armentrout qualified for the state championship in the pole vault, with a leap of 9’6”.

Thrilled with the contributions of the Armentrout sisters, Foxes head winter track & field coach, Rudy Pekarek said, “Seven years ago, I was told at a district meet that I should not retire, because there was an athletic family of triplets who were in elementary school—and if I waited a little longer, they will be helpful to the high school team.”

As the team’s top point scorer, Armentrout’s winter track & field events include: pole vault, high jump, 55-meter dash, 500-meters, and 4x400 meters. In the not-too-distant future her list of winter track & field activities will include the 300-meters run.

Although she holds the school record in the pole vault at 10’3”, it’s only a matter of time before she surpasses her own record. Her goals are lofty, but achievable. Along with being listed in the top five in pole vaulting, she aspires to make all-state, and hold the school record in the 500-meters. She has made all-state in the pole vault for the past two seasons. “Lindsey happens to be one of the most versatile athletes we’ve ever had,” Pekarek said. “She is the type of athlete that you can put in many different events, and make your team stronger.”

Lindsey’s athletic achievements have become the stuff of legend. Her academic theater will soon change to become a freshman mechanical engineering major at Virginia Tech. However, her mark on Fox athletics will last forever.
