Belvidere North 2018 NIC 10 Champs

(5-4-18) Despite having to wait to complete two events (high jump & long jump) on Friday back at Auburn due to thunder (no it wasn’t blue) and lightning, Belvidere North picks up the Girls Track and Field NIC 10 Championship in dominating style. The Blue Thunder broke the NIC 10 record  points record with 209 points and winning 14 of 18 events.

Harlem was 2nd with a 127. 2 points and Hononegah ended in 3rd with 91 points.

The Blue Thunder dominated the meet and it was never in doubt that they would pull out the title.

Grace Bundschuh led the Blue Thunder, winning two individual events, the 100 meter and 200 meter, and was a member of two winning relays (4×100 1nd 4×200).

The only events they did not win were the two hurdle events, the discus and the shot put.

Blue Thunder Head Coach Robert Hunter:

Myself along with my coaching staff are so proud of the way our girls performed. They are some of the toughest bunch of girls we have ever coached. They don’t give up. To finish first in 14 out of 18 events along with 209 points comes once in a lifetime!!

We had so many great performances but what really stuck out to me was sweeping all four relays. Not an easy thing to do in a conference championship meet. Some other great performances came from Brooke Messenger. She won HJ with a 5’6 jump to tie our school record and the Conference record. Kate Oteng-Bediako took LJ and TJ, and our senior sprinter, Grace Bundschuh finished first in the 100m, 200m, 4×1, and 4×2.
