Nine more student-athletes from the Badin High School Class of 2020 have committed to play college sports.
"The coronavirus has eliminated spring sports," Badin Athletic Director Geoff Melzer said, "but it has not eliminated the opportunities for these young men and women to pursue their dreams of college athletics. When the time comes, when the fields of play re-open, these student-athletes will continue the tradition of athletic talent from Badin High School. More information HERE!
Badin High School will celebrate “Senior Month” as the school honors the members of the Class of 2020 in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
“This is such an important time for the seniors, even as we deal with this unprecedented time in our lives,” Badin Principal Brian Pendergest said. “Our administrative team worked hard to come up with some creative ideas that will make this a special memory for the Class of 2020. Our seniors didn’t ask for this, but they have done a tremendous job dealing with it.”
The highlight of the month will be the “Senior Parade” on Wednesday, May 13, from 6 to 8 p.m. Find out more about this event, and others scheduled, HERE!
A talented quarterback for Badin, Patrick recovered from a serious knee injury and -- having moved to wide receiver as a senior -- caught a memorable TD pass in an emotional victory over top-seeded North Richmond in the 2010 playoffs. He went on to play football at the University of Cincinnati, part of the team for two Big East Championships, then transferred to Indiana State University, where injury took him out of the game of football. Soon after he realized that he didn’t need to play on the field to make a difference. Find out how Patrick is making a difference HERE.
As Badin High School wraps up four weeks of online school this week heading into Easter break on Good Friday, Principal Brian Pendergest said he was pleased with the efforts of all concerned.
“None of us have ever been in a situation like this,” Pendergest noted. “Our faculty and students are taking it seriously and working hard under these unusual circumstances to continue with our important fourth quarter curriculum.”
Plans have been upended all over the country because of the coronavirus pandemic. Read more about Badin's action plans (and some highlights!) HERE
