LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) —Mike DeBoy is finishing his tenth year as head coach of the Central Catholic Track and Field Program. CC featured its largest roster in program history this year. 14 of those Knights graduated this spring.
Noah Tally is the only Knight competing at the collegiate level. He will attend IU Kokomo in the Fall.
Out of the 10 boys and four girls who graduated this spring, 10 were four-year members of the program. The class of 2020 held several school records as well as a few semi-state qualifiers.
Coach DeBoy says groups like this one give him purpose as a coach. Although DeBoy wasn't able to coach the 14 seniors in their final year of high school, he wanted them to know his appreciation.
"I think the biggest meesage would be thank you. Thank you for what you've done for us as coaches," said DeBoy. People alwasy ask me, you know, 'how long you gonna keep doing this?' As long as the kids are as great as this group of seniors we're sending out...I'm gonna keep right on a-rollin'.
