Bo Braunecker Signs to Continue Track Career with Eastern Illinois University

Last night, Charlestown senior football and track star Bo Braunecker gathered with family and friends to sign his national letter of intent to continue his education and track career at Eastern Illinois University during the 2020-21 season.

Eastern Illinois University is a public university in Charleston, Illinois. Established in 1895 as the Eastern Illinois State Normal School, a teacher’s college offering a two-year degree, Eastern Illinois University gradually expanded into a comprehensive university with a broad curriculum, including bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education, business, arts, sciences, and humanities.

Eastern Illinois University is a member of the Ohio Valley Conference and competes at the NCAA Division I level, offering 20  varsity sports in men’s and women’s basketball; men’s and women’s cross country; men’s and women’s golf; football; women’s soccer; softball; men’s and women’s tennis; men’s and women’s indoor and outdoor track and field; and volleyball.

 When asked about his opportunity to play at the next level with the Panthers, Bo said, “After my first visit at Eastern Illinois I knew that was the place I wanted to go, not because it was division one, but for the reason that I felt that I fit in with the team and it would help shape be into being the man that I want to be. The team reminded me of the track family at CHS. Charlestown’s track team is not just a team, but we are a family as well and I saw this with Eastern Illinois Track team. Everyone made me feel welcome. It just felt like a home away from home. ”

The Charlestown High School athletic department and WPMQ, The Pirate Network congratulate Bo and wish him a healthy and prosperous future as an Eastern Illinois University Panther.

Delaney Signs Intent to Attend Hanover

Charlestown High School Senior Track & Field standout Steven Delaney gathered with family, friends and school officials Wednesday to sign his intent to attend and run track at Hanover College.  Delaney will soon leave his high school career, but one which has continually left a mark in not only the Charlestown High School athletic recordbook, but also its academic recordbooks.  Delaney has already earn two years of college credits through Ivy Tech; but will also graduate at this year’s valedictorian.  Delaney has been the Pirate hurdle king of CHS for several years, holding the school record in both the 110m hurdle event (14.70) and the 300m hurdle event (39.38); a record he has improved on at twice during his high school career.  Delaney looks to improve on that beginning this week during the IHSAA Boys Sectional.  Delaney is the current MSC and Jeffersonville Sectional 300 meter hurdle defending Champion.

Joining Steven for his signing event are CHS Track Coaches David Daniel (seated left) and Jerry Doyle (seated right of Delaney); and Charlestown High School Athletic Director Chad Gilbert, seated far right.  Parents Allen and Desiree Holz (standing from the left), friends Trey Woodward and Andrew Shaw (standing center), and parents James and Kristy Delaney.

When asked what advice he would give to young runners following him who want to run in college; Delaney stated “find ways to be competitive and always work hard to never be satisfied with results”.
