Belle Plaine’s Blake Hunter – Ken Gooch’s Shelter Athlete Of The Month

By Hayden Swope

Blake Hunter, a track athlete at Belle Plaine, was chosen as the Shelter Insurance Athlete of the Month. Hunter has had an exciting season winning the Douglass, Belle Plaine, and Wellington Invitationals in the 600-meter. He also took fourth at the Central-Burden invitational where he set a personal record of 2:17.15. 

“I am proud and thankful to be chosen,” Hunter said.

Hunter spent the season bettering himself, his times, and all his events, while juggling a leadership role on the team.

“Some goals I had throughout the season were to work on improving myself and working on my own abilities,” Hunter said. “I think the goals I made I have achieved because I have improved, but there is always more room to improve.”

Hunter has enjoyed his wins saying he will always remember getting to show off his awards.

“The most memorable moment of this season was earning plaques and showing them off,” Hunter said.

Besides track, Hunter is involved in cross country, basketball, and FFA. After high school, Hunter plans on entering the Marines to become a mechanic.
