Brophy to compete in Nike National Track Championship

By Ian C. Beck ’12

The Brophy track team has covered a lot of ground this season, but will soon sprint to Oregon to compete for the national championship.

Nike is sponsoring a national championship for the top 12 track programs from across the country.

As the No. 1 team in the Southwest region, Brophy was invited to compete in the meet on July 2, in Eugene, Ore.

Each school will have one athlete in each event and will be awarded points based on how high they place in their event.

All three of Brophy’s state champions, Harry Danilevics ’10, Alex Bishop ’10 and Tommy Williams ’11, will compete in the meet.

Other Brophy competitors include Devon Allen ’13, Josh Dennard ’11, James Harper ’12 and Geoff Roxborough ’10.
