Brownstown Central’s boys track team concludes season



Brownstown Central High School’s boys track and field team wrapped up its 2019 campaign with an awards program Wednesday.

The Braves were seventh in the Mid-Southern Conference and eighth at sectional. Overall, the team finished with a record of 16-24.

Braves junior Derek Thompson was named the team’s most valuable as well as the most outstanding sprinter. Thompson, who scored 108.75 points for the Braves, was the Bedford North Lawrence Sectional champion in the 200-meter dash and also made All-MSC honorable mention in the event.

Thompson ran the 200 and was on the 4×100 relay team with Braeden Walker, Brandon Wilson and Robbie Branaman at the Bloomington North Regional.

Senior Caleb Bollinger received the team’s most outstanding field event award. He was the MSC and sectional champion in the pole vault before finishing runner-up at regional to punch his second straight ticket to the state finals at Indiana University in Bloomington. There, he placed 17th.

Branaman, a senior, received the mental attitude award, and sophomore Andrew Wheeles took home the most improved award.

Academic All-State honors went to Ethan Bundy and Branaman, and Wilson made the honorable mention list.

Derrick Koch was the head coach of the Braves with Mark Reynolds, Chance Schmitt and Todd Bollinger assisting.

The Braves graduate five athletes from their roster.
