Cards fly high in B-4 District!

Boone Central wins 1st boys district team championship! 

Cardinal girls and boys combine for 17 state qualifiers!  

Boone Central hosted the B-4 District Track & Field Championships Tuesday, May 9, and to say it was a great day for Cardinals would be right on the mark. Just ask Card Coach Susan Roberts.

“What a day!,” Roberts exclaimed after the meet. “I cannot fully express how proud I am of our boys and girls!”

The Cardinals capped a riveting day by hoisting the first district track and field championship trophy in Boone Central history, paced by nine 2023 state championships qualifiers. The Lady Cards, one year after failing to qualify a state performer, will send eight athletes to Omaha next week.

Due to the date of the district event and Albion News/Boone County Tribune weekly deadlines, complete coverage, results and photos from the B-4 District will appear in May 17 print and online editions. Class B competition in the 2023 Nebraska State Track and Field Championships at Omaha Burke Stadium will be May 17-18. Again, due to News/Tribune deadline and publication, complete state coverage will be in the May 24 print and online editions. State performances will be updated May 17-18 at

Following are the Boone Central state qualifiers in 2023:
