I know you have read several blogs about the academic achievements of local athletes. Two-time state champ, Curtis Eckstein, was one of the top graduates recently at Oldenburg Academy. Mary & Sarah Poltrack were top students at BHS as well as record breakers in track and cross county. If you read the Herald Tribune’s tribute to Batesville, East Central, and Oldenburg Academy’s top students, you will notice that a lot of them not only excelled in the classroom but on the athletic field as well.For many years Batesville High School, a 4-star scholastic school system, has had more Academic All-State athletes per student population than any other high school in the state of Indiana. Too many media outlets want to jump on athletes who get in trouble. It is much nicer to write about those who quietly go about excelling in everything they do.
