More Memories

May 26, 2013

The other day my wife found a picture of the 1982 Conference and County track championship team picture in our basement. It brought back a lot of memories. This boys team followed a 1981 group that might have been one of the top squads I ever coached at BHS. I was very surprised when they followed with another championship. It wasn’t until 2012 that a Batesville team would win the conference again. The 1982 team was led by Brian Siefert and Jeff Edwards who both went on to star in college. I wonder how many such pictures and trophies are hidden away in some coaches’ basement. Most schools that have any kind of continued success do not have the available space to display all of these trophies. I know that many trophies and pictures have bitten the dust and were tossed for lack of something to do with them. I have taken some of the trophies that were going to be “retired” home with me, and then taken the inscriptions off and donated the trophy to some worthy causes for further use. I, of course, kept the inscriptions. I wish I knew the answer to this problem, because no matter when the trophy was won, it meant a lot to the people who are on it. Schools cannot afford to add rooms on simply to display them since the money must come from the taxpayers. BHS has done a great job finding room to display as many of them as possible. If you have an idea on how to keep these trophies alive and on display, pass it on to the athletic director at your school. Like I said earlier, everyone of them is important to the people in them no matter how old they get.
