BHS’s 1st KIL track sweep since ’77
Judy Johnson named most outstanding girl performer


Judy Johnson is already an outstanding track athlete without special motivation.

“When Judy’s mother’s here, she just runs out of her mind,” Bearden High School girls head coach Barry Faust said, as his Lady Bulldogs combined with Steve Prince’s BHS boys team to easily win the KIL boys and girls track championship, held at the University of Tennesse’s Tom Black Track April 21-22. It was the first BHS sweep since 1977.


Johnson earned the meet’s Most Outstanding Girl Performer award after winning the 200-meter dash (24.94), the 400 (58.71) and the long jump (16-feet-7) in addition to a second-place finish in the triple-jump (34-feet-04.25), a third in the 100-dash (12.24) and the anchor leg on the Lady ’Dawgs’ 4 X 100 relay (50.89).

“She’s in a Lindsay Glover category,” Faust said, using the very favorable comparision to last year’s top BHS sprinter now competing in college. “Judy is a good kid and she works hard.”

While the boys blew past their competition (135 points to second-place West’s 81.5), the Lady Bulldogs did the same behind Johnson to out-distance second-place Webb 165 to 129.

In addition to the BHS KIL champions pictured in the upper right corner, other top Bearden girls was Kelly Kohlbusch’s KIL title in the 300 hurdles (48.24) and second in the 100 hurdles (16.07). Jenny Randolph took second in the 3,200 (12:00.42) and third in the 1,600 (5:38.60).

Bearden also won the 4 X 200 behind Jeanna Davis, Catherine LaForce, Kolhbusch and Allysia Davis (1:47.69). The 4 X 800 team was second (9:58.52).

BHS BOYS DOMINATE

Bryan Webb, named the boys meet’s top sprinter, won both the 200 (22.67) and 400 (49.62) in addition to anchoring the Bulldogs’ winning 4 X 400 relay team (4:14.60) along with Patrick Shires, Nathan Grace (second in the 400) and Jay Oatts. In addition to the boys champions pictured in the upper right corner, Oatts was 300 hurdles champ (40.36) and second in the 110 hurdles. Thaddeus Grace took second in the 200.
