It was deja vu all over again for Bellefontaine’s girls and Benjamin Logan’s boys track and field teams here Friday night at Dodd Stadium at the Central Buckeye Conference meet.
The Chieftain girls finished first overall in the 12-team league meet for the second year in a row and repeated as Kenton Trail division champions.
“The girls have had a nice little run of winning league titles in the past six or seven years,” said BHS head coach Ben Davis. “You have to credit our junior high program for providing us with girls that are well trained before we get them. The junior high won their CBC meet earlier this week, so it is exciting for our girls program right now.”
Bellefontaine claimed league titles in six of 17 events and won by a comfortable margin on Friday with 121 points. That is especially gratifying because the Chieftains focus their entire season on the league meet.
“We have a very strong field event crew that is complimented with a tremendous sprint and hurdle crew,” said Davis. “Then the distance girls chipped in some valuable points. We have great leadership from our upperclassmen who really care about winning a league title.”
