for state track finals
By Justin Sokeland
Garrett Flinn, a three-sport standout as a senior, was named TheHHCSports.com’s third Male Athlete of the Year.
Flinn played soccer during the fall campaign and helped the Stars finish 6-8-5. He was a starter on the basketball team, averaging 2.7 points (scoring a career-high 11 against Corydon) and 1.3 rebounds as BNL went 14-11.
He made the major impact in track. Flinn was a member of the 400 and 1600 relays that won Hoosier Hills Conference, sectional and regional championships while qualifying for the IHSAA state finals in both races.
Other notable performers included Jarod Deckard (tennis, basketball and baseball), Corbin Cain (football and basketball), Tucker West (football and basketball), Brandt Callahan (tennis and baseball), Cole Mathews (football and baseball), Micah Wagner (track), Braxton Day (basketball), Alex Manke (swimming) and Brayden Tidd (football).
Matt Garrison, a two-sport standout during his senior year in 2014, was the first recipient of the honor, while Mason Sherfick won the award last season.
TheHHCSports.com will also name a Coach of the Year. Jaclyn Dufresne was named female Athlete of the Year.
