15 Bull Dog athletes, three Columbus North coaches recognized by Conference Indiana in 2020-21 winter sports

            Thirteen athletes from Columbus North High School earned first-team all-Conference Indiana honors in the six winter sports of 2020-21.

            In addition, two other CNHS athletes received honorable mention all-conference accolades.

            The school also had three coaches recognized as a Conference Indiana Coach of the Year – Paul Ferguson in boys basketball, Pat McKee in girls basketball and Betsy Warble in gymnastics.

            Athletes in boys basketball and girls basketball were selected in a vote of conference coaches on Tuesday (March 9). Athletes in boys swimming, girls swimming and wrestling have known of their selections since their respective conference meet earlier in the winter because accolades in those sports are based on performance in those events. Athletes in gymnastics were selected based on results in dual meets against the other conference schools.

            Coach of the Year awards are presented to the coach of the team that won the league championship in each sport.

            A list of Columbus North’s 2020-21 winter sports all-conference honorees follows.

            >> Boys Basketball – Blake Barker, Reese Harmon, Cooper Horn. Honorable mention: Jakub Trusina.

            >> Girls Basketball – Lauren Barker, Kylah Lawson, Alexa McKinley. Honorable mention: Madison White.

            >> Gymnastics –Madi Edwards, Emily Moore, Lindsey Mullis.

            >> Boys Swimming – David Fry, Christopher Lee, Aidan McAlister, Daniel Utterback.
