Bruins News · Boys Medley Relay Team Sets School Record in Win Last Week


Blackford traveled to Elwood for a 3-way meet on January 3rd that included Liberty Christian. The boys and girls teams each returned 2-0 on the evening and the boys 200 Medley Relay team broke the school record that has stood for 42 years. Drew Caldwell, Ethan Miller, Bode Malott and Collin Penrod put up a time of 1:51.05. The prior record was set by Craig Fread, Ben Green, Jeff Custer, and Brad Everhart in a time of 1:51.7 in ’77.
