No performance epitomizes Dickman’s versatility more than the track and field sectional in 2016. Seton won the track and field sectional title with just seven athletes on its roster.
Connersville, with 26 athletes, finished second. Richmond, with 34 athletes, finished fourth.
To get the most of his team, head coach Todd Barker asked those seven athletes to do unusual things. Few teams in the area compete in the pole vault. Dickman had never competed in the event, but had a performance for the ages.
