44 Columbus North athletes, 5 Bull Dog coaches collect Conference Indiana accolades

                Thirty-two athletes from Columbus North High School earned first-team all-Conference Indiana accolades in the eight fall sports of 2019. In addition, 12 other CNHS athletes were selected honorable mention all-conference.

                The school also had five men recognized as a Conference Indiana Coach of the Year – Danny Fisher in boys cross country, Kendal Hammel in boys tennis, Rick Sluder in girls cross country, Scott Seavers in girls golf and David Young in girls soccer.

                Athletes in football, boys soccer, girls soccer, boys tennis and volleyball were selected following a vote of conference coaches on Monday (Nov. 4). Athletes in boys cross country, girls cross country and girls golf have know of their honors since the conference meet in their sport because those accolades are based on performance in those events.
