Bishop Dunne's Track Team

Bishop Dunne has three state champions on its track teams following the final meet of the year.

Competing this weekend with a lean team of six girls and 12 boys, Coach Isaac Bell summed up: “We took 18 students to the state meet and 16 came back with medals. Three are state champions! The boys placed 2nd overall and the girls placed 4th overall.”

“Coach Bell is a great coach who pushes you to excel on the track but also other areas,”  said junior Micah Simon, member of the 4x200 and 4x400 men’s relay teams and starting quarterback for the Falcons.
