OXFORD, Ind. (WLFI) — If you had describe the Benton Central Bison Track & Field program in one word, choose "united." Head coach Ed Robson said this group had an uncanny ability to be leaders and mentors to underclassmen. BC Track & Field is next up on the senior spotlight.
The 14 seniors on the 2020 Bison roster have quite a resume. The girls had a hand in bringing home eight straight sectional titles, and the boys were in the hunt this year for a sectional title as well.
One athlete will be running at the next level: Kale Kottkamp will attend IU Kokomo in the fall. Coach Robson said these seniors were leaders, with a capital L.
"One thing that was really unique [about the team is] we have some very talented underclassmen. And there was no jealously. These seniors encouraged and supported the younger athletes," said Robson this week. "They seem to be like translators. They understand what I'm trying to say and they can kinda turn it into 'Benon-Central-eese' so the underclassmen [can understand]."
