Multiple Teams · Cross Country Runners Show Great Times & Improvement


The cross country team has shown much improvement over the past few weeks. Coach Schmidt shared that many have run the best times recorded over the past 10 years.

To name a few….

#1 time for 9th grade girls, Falynne Reed & boys, Andrew Thurman
#1 time for 10th grade girls, Jamie Twibell & boys, Brady Swartz (who is a junior this year)
#1 time for 11th grade girls, Bailey Cline
#2 time for 12th grade girls, Marci Thurman & 8th place for boys, Devin Tarr

According to Coach Schmidt, “these are current runners for Blackford High School. These placing are based on the top 20 runners since 2005.”

There is a lot to look forward to from the girls especially but the boys are making great strides as well.

Great job Bruins!!!
