Congratulations to the BHS boys track & field team as they continued their amazing season by winning the North 1, Group 1 State Sectional Championship on Saturday, May 27th. Head coach Mr. Bongo reported:
Led by individual champions Omar Anderson, winner of the 100-meter dash and long jump, and James Eyler, winner of the high hurdles and 400 hurdles, the boy’s team scored 99 points defeating runner-up Saddlebrook by a whopping 37 points!
It was a total team effort as fifteen different boys scored points in the meet and all qualified for the state finals this coming weekend!
The highlight of the day was when the foursome of Maleek Awan, Tim Rittinger, Mark Stanic and Omar Anderson set a new state meet record in winning the 4 x100 meter relay. The points gained in that event put the Bombers in a position where they could not be caught for the team title!
The following is a list of boys who scored points, contributing to the team victory:
