BHS track tradition reaching 100 seasons

The 1926 team was Bluffton's second-ever track team

Bluffton High School's outstanding track and field tradition is closing in on 100 seasons. Here's the 1926 BHS boys' and girls' track squads, champions of the Allen County meet.

Two members of this squad had outstanding careers following high school. Sherm Shelley eventually toured the world with Lowell Thomas as his projectionist. Ike Geiger became the first-ever athletic director of MIT, Boston. Watch Bluffton Forever for features on these two individuals coming soon.
