BHS sweeps track and field titles at county meet

BATESVILLE — Batesville High School hosted the annual Ripley County track and field meet last week on what was a good night all around.

The boys meet was a little closer with the Bulldogs collecting 113 points. South Ripley was second with 61 followed by Milan (31) and Jac-Cen-Del (29).

Individually, Batesville’s Kelsey Gausman shared Most Valuable Player honors with Kelsey Bowling of Jac-Cen-Del. Batesville senior Andy Nolan was named the MVP on the boys side.

Batesville’s Dani Strobel as she broke her own pole vault record by a foot as she vaulted over 9’6”.
