Bull Dogs shine at State Track and Field Championships

 

    June 6, 2022 - Both the girls and boys track and field teams had excellent performances at the IHSAA State Track and Field Championships held June 3, 4 at IU in Bloomington.  The girls scored 16 team points, finishing tied for 18th with Floyd Central.  The boys scored 43 points to finish in third place, the highest finish in school history since a runner-up finish in 1952 (while still Columbus High School).

    The girls meet started with a bang for the Bull Dogs with the first event of the afternoon, the 4x800m relay.  Brianna Newell, Katherine Rumsey, Lily Baker, and Julie Klaus finished in 9:08.32, smashing the school record and finishing second to Valparaiso.  The outstanding performances kept coming for the Bull Dogs as Baker and Klaus finished sixth and twelfth, respectively, in the 800m.  Newell survived an early fall and battled back to a 24th-place finish in the 1600m.  Julia Kiesler and Rumsey then finished sixth and eleventh in the 3200m, both with personal-best times.

    The 4x800m relay was fantastic for the boys’ team as well (Clayton Guthrie, Kellen Hottell, Matt Newell, and Mateo Mendez), as they broke the IHSAA meet record in their state championship effort.  Their 7:37.896 allowed them to finish five seconds ahead of second-place Center Grove.  In the field events, Tucker Smith placed second in the discus with a 170-04 effort, and defended his state title in the shot put, recording a 66-06.75 mark.  Reese Kilbarger-Stumpff had the Dogs’ second runner-up finish in the 1600m run, in 4:09.56.  Newell and Kilbarger-Stumpff finished third and fourteenth, respectively, in the 800m, with Newell recording a personal-best time.  Will Russell and Evan Carr followed suit with personal-best times in the 3200m, finishing 17th and 18th.

    Congratulations to head coach Rick Sluder and the Columbus North track and field teams for an outstanding State meet, completing another excellent season.
