The Batesville Bulldog track and field team traveled back to South Dearborn Monday night to finish up the eight team South Dearborn Invitational from April 20th that was stopped because of the weather.
It was a battle all night back and forth between the Franklin County Wildcats and the Batesville Bulldogs. The boys came up 3 points short 107-104 to FC . Unfortunately, the men’s pole vault ended up being canceled and not a part of the scoring as the high winds made it too dangerous to vault.
Other teams and their scores in the invitational were…on the boys: Lbrug-93, Oldenburg-80, Switzerland County-40, South Dearborn-16, Rising Sun-14 and South Ripley-9.
Batesville had several champions, a meet MVP and two meet records broken.
First, Garrett Wagner broke the 14 year old 110 meter hurdle record set by Batesville’s Matt Doll back in 1993 of 15.44 – Wagner clocked a 15.06. Wagner also shaved a little more time off his 300m hurdles record the he set last year of 40.53, but went through at 40.3 tonight.
