A Season to Remember!

Bethany sports teams have a lot to celebrate this fall season: hosting matches on our newly renovated athletic facility, scoring hard earned victories, learning from losses, and growing as individuals and teams through practices, games, and in the classroom. This fall season we had a total of 19 senior athletes (pretty impressive coming from a class total of 31) and 37 athletes who received outstanding academic achievements. 

All 5 sports teams ended their seasons with great success! 

Boys Soccer: Conference Champs & Sectional Champs

Girls Soccer: Conference Champs & Sectional Champs

Tennis: Wabash Invitational Winners (for the third year in a row), defeated a tough NorthWood team in the sectional semifinals, and ended their season with the most wins since 2016

Volleyball: Conference Champs

Cross Country: Sam Klopfenstein, Roman Nyce, and Jesse Bontrager advanced to regionals and Jesse Bontrager advanced to semistate.

Congratulations to all our Bruin athletes on a great season! Let’s Go, BRUINS!! #BruinPride
