On Monday, Boyd Christian School competed in the Middle Tennessee Athletic Conference championships at Currey-Ingram in Brentwood. Runners from Christian schools all over the Midstate and Southern Kentucky competed.
The Bronco cross country team boasted its best season in recent memory behind Phillip Brock who finished in first place in the conference championship race. Brock finished the 5K with a time of 17:14. Brock’s other accomplishments this season include first team all-conference for the regular season. He was also named Runner of the Year for the second straight year, the first time in conference history a runner has received this award in consecutive years.
Brock has also recently been offered a scholarship to Freed-Hardeman University for his achievements in cross country. He is the first runner in Boyd Christian history to receive such an offer as a runner.
Drake Stubblefield finished in 11th place out of the field of just over 120 competitors. Stubblefield competes for the middle school and he finished his 1.5K race with a time of 9:49 and was awarded a medal. He also received a first team all-conference honor for the regular season and finished in 12th place overall in the regular season.
Jamison Brock was rewarded with first team all-conference in his first season in cross country competition. He finished fifth overall for the regular season. Unfortunately he was not able to compete due to illness in the MTAC championships.
Cindy Jane Perry finished the championship race in second place for the MTAC Elementary Division. It was also a best finish ever by a Boyd elementary runner.
Boyd head coach Wally McClarren said, “I am happy for our school, our team, and our runners. They are all great kids and all have a winning attitude with great potential.”
