BCHS Track & Field Compete in Region; Boys win Region Title

The Bears are Region 2 Track & Field Champions. Butler County scored 102 points in route to their first Regional Championship in almost 30 years. The Bears defeated regional runner-up Bardstown who finished with 95 points. Coach Fuller was thrilled with his team’s performance “We knew we were one of the top 2-3 teams in the region based on rankings, but these kids met and outperformed their seeds in almost every event. I couldn’t be prouder of the way both boys’ and girls’ teams competed”. The Bears also had several individual Regional Champions. Josh Morris won the 100m Dash, 200m Dash, 400m Dash & was the anchor leg on the Regional Champion 4x400m Relay Team.

“Very proud of Josh, he has worked so hard to get to this point. To be a regional champion in 4 events is unheard of and he made it look easy,” said Head Coach Andy Fuller.

Landon Binion won the 300mh, finished 2nd in the 110mh and was a member of both 4x200m & 4x400m Regional Championship relay teams.

Coach Steven Lindsey states, “For Landon to win a Regional Championship is a huge accomplishment. He has worked tirelessly on his craft, and it showed here today.”
