Next week is Conference Week…varsity is on Thursday at Franklin County and the JV race Saturday at South Dearborn. Let’s go Dogs!Courtesy of Bulldogs Coach Lisa Gausman. As many sports were cancelling their competitions last night, the Ripley County Track Teams decided to go for it. It ended up being an almost perfect night for a track meet. As the rain and thick air moved out, the temperatures and wind conditions were perfect and many track athletes took advantage of it as many county records were broken last night and personal records achieved. The Batesville Bulldogs came away with two huge victories. On the girls side Batesville scored a solid 99 points as South Ripley, Jac-Cen-Del and Milan battled it out. South Ripley and JCD tied at 49 points with Milan just behind with 44. On the boys side, Batesville scored 118.50 with Milan coming in 2nd with 43 points, just outscoring JCD by 2 with 41 points. South Ripley had 34.5.Ripley County also gives an MVP award for the night to the person who scores the most points for their team. The Bulldogs got to honor Stephanie Nobbe for this award. This is Stephanie 3rd time winning the Ripley County MVP for track. Her sophomore year the meet was canceled because of the weather so they didn’t have it, making her win this award every year of her high school career. Way to go Stephanie!
