The Bison Boys Track and Field team won the Mississippi 8 conference title for the 10th consecutive year.
“This was our 10th year in a row. In all of our events we’ve had guys place top three. There were a lot of contributors: Josh Alden, Michael Swearingen, Tyler Olson, Dan Pettit, Joey Merz, Andrew Mussell, Mitch Valli, and Eddie Cliffton,” said Senior Austin Youngs. “We always have really good athletes and send people to state. It’s simply a decade of excellence.”
The team this year is full of athletes who plan on competing beyond high school. Pettit is headed to SDSU, Valli is going to Florida, Olson is going up to UND, Alden and Youngs are going to Northern State, Jackson Schepp and Cliffton are going to Concordia Moorhead, and Swearingen is headed to St. Johns.
“Our team is good. We’re not only good in one area, we’re good in all areas,” said Olson. “I have high hopes to make it to State again. I got 5th last year and I’ve worked hard to hopefully do better for my last go.”
We wish the Bison good luck and FIRE UP!
