Boys Track "Kings of NKY"
May 9, 2014By Chris Davis of Bishop Brossart High School
As the season is winding down, the track team is entering the final phase of their long journey, the championship phase. The team took down the Diocese meet for the first time in several years, and Saturday they took aim at the NKY Area 5 Championships.
The team's depth was evident Saturday as they scored 149 points! They were event champions in the 4x800, with Smith, Chism, Hartig and Vogel leading the way. The high flying duo of Roberts and Drew Berkemeyer lead the way in the long and Triple Jumps. And Michael Caldwell ran his fastest time ever in the 800 meter run, running 1:58.00 just .24 seconds off another school record. Chris Loos also performed well in the 800 meter run running his best time in the 800 meter dash at 2:03.11.
The team enjoyed a victory lap around the track and are getting prepared for their final competitions. Focus and determination will be the deciding factor as they go up against sprinting power Walton Verona in the upcoming regional. Coach Davis knows it will be a tough test but he will take these guys over every other team in the region.
