The Batesville Bulldog Girls track and field team were named Sectional Runner ups last night as they snuck by the Franklin County Wildcats by 5 points placing 2nd with a score of 92 points to Franklin’s 87. Congratulations to the East Central Trojans as they continue to show their dominance scoring an incredible 177 points! Batesville have many athletes advancing to Regional competition next week.
