Where did the 2015-16 season go? It was the vapor that appeared for a little while and vanished. Somewhere between August’s heat and May’s monsoon rains, Bedford North Lawrence crammed in 19 sports and several hundred events. And even when the school doors close for the short summer, the games go on.
The sports year was interesting, to understate the obvious. Basketball dominated the headlines again, of course, and captured the public interest with a controversial coaching change, but other teams and individual athletes made the campaign memorable with their accomplishments.
Here’s a look at the Top 20 stories of the past year:
20. BNL baseball raises over $9,000 in Coaches vs. Cancer game: Sometimes it doesn’t matter who wins. The Stars honored cancer survivors and remembered the disease’s victims during its annual fundraiser game with county-rival Mitchell. For the record, Austin Long struck out 10 as the Stars overpowered the Bluejackts 10-0 in six innings.
19. Megan Lambrecht shatters school record: Lambrecht, a sophomore, pulled off a unique double play, competing in track and softball simultaneously during a hectic spring. She made it worthwhile when she shattered the school record in the shot put, heaving that ball 37-11 while winning the Hoosier Hills Conference title in that event.
