Eagles News · McPheeters and Phelps Compete at the State Championship


Friday evening, Jackson McPheeters and Dale Phelps closed out their BCHS track and field careers at the state finals in Bloomington.  Phelps opened up the night for the Eagles, finishing 24th in the 300 hurdles.  Phelps clocked a time of 40.97.   This was the second time he had competed in finals: he was a member of last year’s 4×400 relay team that competed at the championship and broke a 32-year school record.  McPheeters competed in the 800, finishing 18th in a time of 1:58.50.  This was the fifth event at the state championship  McPheeters had competed in during his career.  During his sophomore year, he ran on the 4×800 team, and last season he was also at the championships on the school record setting 4×400 and 4×800 teams, along with running the open 800.  Congratulations and thank you’s go to both young men on what they have accomplished and for what they have given to their team/school.
