BNL must find a way
to compete with Floyd
in HHC and 4-A sectional
By Justin Sokeland
Note: With the start of official practices for fall sports, we’ve looked at five different sports and examined the key issues heading into the 2016-17 calendar season.
1. Can Bedford North Lawrence end its sectional skid?
The Stars have won 10 sectional championships in program history, but the last came in 2000. Not only has winning one gotten tougher because of class sports, but the Hoosier Hills Conference has greatly improved in the game with the emergence of power programs Floyd Central (9 sectionals since 2001), New Albany (state champion in 1987 and state runner-up in ’88 and ’91) and Jennings County (5 sectional crowns since 2005).
The Stars advanced to the sectional title game last season but fell 8-0 to Floyd Central.
