Ben Davis boys win MIC title

The Ben Davis Giants boys’ track team competed in the Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference track meet last Friday night at Ben Davis.

The Giants won the event with a score of 126.5 points. Carmel (110.5) placed second, Lawrence North (87.5) took third, Center Grove (85) was fourth, Warren Central (69) finished fifth, North Central (63.5) took sixth, Terre Haute South (40) placed seventh and Terre Haute North (39) finished eighth.

Individual winners for the Giants came in the field events as Errick Roberts (long jump), Moussa Conde (pole vault) and Harold West (high jump) all took first.

“This is a team victory,” Ben Davis coach Mike Davidson said. “Our 4x800 (team) helped set the tone, along with our field events stepping up helping a lot.”

The Giants also took home a victory in the 4x100 relay.

Jeremey Chappelle, who earlier in the night had finished second to Carmel junior Austin Roberts in the 100, anchored the 4x100 relay team to victory by holding off Roberts.

Chappelle fell across the line and began holding his right thigh following the race. After some attention from trainers, Chappelle was able to walk away on his own.

“It was a cramp in my hamstring,” Chappelle said. “It (Roberts closing in) was the only thing running through my mind coming to the line.”

Chappelle’s second-place finish and win in the relay earned the Giants 18 points toward their final score.

“I give all of my glory to God and keep positive,” Chappelle said. “It’s what helps me do my job so we can try to get the win.”

The Giants were also able to take home a few second- and third-place finishes throughout the evening and that depth pushed them to the top.

Chappelle and JaJuan Green took second and third in the 100, respectively.

 The Giants finished second and third in the discus throw with senior Zubin Coleman (156-02) taking second and sophomore Justin Brandon (150-11) placing third.

Along with the win in the 4x100 the Giants finished second in the 4x400 and third in the 4x800.

While the Giants were victorious, Davidson was quick to add his thoughts on enhancements for the team’s future.

“You can always see places for improvement,” he said. “This is a nice victory but you can look around the state and always see where you need to improve.”
