The Batesville Track and Field team traveled to Franklin County last night to compete in our conference meet.

Although there was a little bit of rain on and off towards the beginning of the meet, the skies cleared and it ended up being a pretty good night for a track meet. Both the boys and the girls team came in a strong 3rd as the meet came to an end with the East Central Trojans crowned champions in both.

On the girls side, East Central again showed their depth as they scored an incredible 154 points. The Bulldogs and the Franklin County Wildcats battled for the 2nd place title with the Wildcats nudging past them by 2.5 points scoring 95 points to Batesville’s 92.5. Greensburg took the 4th spot at 84 points, followed by Rushville with 70, Connersville-58, South Dearborn-40.5 and Lawrenceburg-30.

On the boys side, the Rushville Lions challenged the Trojans, but came up just 4.5 points short as East Central scored 125 to Rushville’s 120.5. Batesville had 108 with a solid third. Franklin County was 4th with 80, followed by Greensburg-65, Connersville-57.5, South Dearborn-34 and Lawrenceburg-32.

Batesville did have several conference champions, dominating from the 400 on up. Starting off the night, the boys 4 x 800 relay team of JJ Kuisel, Johnathon Lynch, Benjamin Moster and Adam Moster were named conference champions as they ran a 27 second personal best at 8:23.07! Joshua Myers won the 1600m run (4:42.15). JJ Kuisel held on to the victory in the 400m dash by .21 seconds (52.46). Adam Moster beat the rest of the field in the 800m run by almost 8 seconds cruising through at 158.79 claiming the 800 championship. After battling a foot injury since the end of the indoor season, fighting to return, Ean Loichinger proved that being determined to stay in top shape by cross training and doing whatever he could do to be ready when he got the clear from the doctor, amazed the crowd, beating the competition by almost 11 seconds at 10:10.97 in the 3200m run for his first race of the outdoor season. And our final champion for the night was Kent Meyers in high jump at 5’10”. Congratulations Conference Champions!
