The Seymour High School boys track and field program held a season-ending awards ceremony last week in the school’s cafeteria.
Owls sophomore Josh Pennington was named the team’s most valuable athlete. Pennington was a state-qualifier in the 110 hurdles, finishing 23rd in 15.52 seconds.
Pennington was runner-up at the Bloomington North Regional with a personal-best time of 15.31 and second at the Bedford North Lawrence Sectional in 15.67. He also competed in the long jump and the 4×100 and 4×400 relays.
The Most Outstanding Field Event award went to seniors Haden Mettert and Caleb Madden.
Mettert was the sectional champion in the shot put (51-1), and placed sixth in the regional. Madden qualified for the regional in the discus and teamed up with Mettert for a blue ribbon at the New Albany Relays.
Senior Michael Hodge and junior Luke Bane were both Academic All-State First Team members.
