Giants lap sectional field

The No. 5-ranked Ben Davis boys’ track team left no doubt as to its strength as the Giants rang up first-place finishes in 11 of 16 events and advanced to regional in all 16 events as they won the IHSAA Track Sectional team title last Thursday at Ben Davis High School.

Ben Davis scored 201 team points and topped second place Southport (93 points) by 108 points.

Along the way, the Giants swept all three relays and were paced by the meet’s individual star, junior Moussa Conde, who ran one relay leg and claimed three individual events.

Veteran Ben Davis coach Mike Davidson had plenty of big performances to laud with his team after the meet.

“We expected to do well just looking at the seeds,” Davidson said.  “Our goal was to get as many guys as possible to move through, and we were pretty close to reaching our goals. Our field events really took care of business.  I was pleased with our distance crew, and our sprint/hurdles group did a great job — that’s a testament to our coaches and our whole program.”

While the host Giants were making the most noise throughout the meet, Westside neighbor Covenant Christian scored 10 points across four events and claimed a single berth in next week’s regional competition back at Ben Davis.

But the day belonged to Conde, a junior whose individual wins included an unusual combination of the 110 meter hurdles, the 300 meter hurdles (over teammate Antione Sturges), and the pole vault.  Conde capped off his night with running a leg on the 4x400 relay squad with teammates Aaron Murray, Derrick Jones, and Jaylen Hogan.

“I know that I still have to get better and run faster and jump higher,” Conde said.  “I’m tired, but I feel great. The coaches have taught me to adjust and helped me to get to be the best I can be on the track, both mentally and physically.”
