This Saturday, the Broadwater Academy boys were projected 3rd and the girls 2nd–both went to the state meet as underdogs by nearly 20 points on both sides, yet with superb performances in shot put, high jump, and the short and long distances, the Vikings were able to capture the VISAA D2 State Championship. Broadwater scored school records yesterday in the girls’ 400, 3200, 4×100, 4×400, 4×800, shot put, and the boys’ 4×800. It was a gutsy performance in not the best of conditions. It has been a great season for coaches Eric Hack, Eva Noonan, Coach Narin, Coach Beckert and Coach Gustafson, a testament to their training and dedication.
A moment of pure joy as the BA Boys find out they are champions:
