Remembering Barr-Reeve's Trester winners

MONTGOMERY — Barr-Reeve has had some amazing success in sports and academics in the last few years and this spring another honor was bestowed on the school.

This time it was the selection of Micah Bullock as the 2013 Class A Arthur L. Trester Award for Mental Attitude on March 29. Bullock became the fourth Barr-Reeve student to receive this special award.

Last fall, Bullock’s first cousin Jenna Knepp also won the Mental Attitude Award as Barr-Reeve won the Class A volleyball state championship. In the spring of 2010, Bullock’s second cousin Christian Duncheon also won the Trester Award in the Class A state basketball title game when the Vikings lost to Bowman Academy.

The other mental attitude award winner goes back a few years, as Kristi (Kavanaugh) Griffin won it 1998. It was the first ever run to the state by a Barr-Reeve volleyball team when the Vikings played Clinton Prairie.

Bullock, who won the latest award in March as the Vikings lost 70-66 in overtime to Marquette Catholic at Bankers Life Fieldhouse wasn’t prepared for the prestigious honor.

“I had no idea that I had won it until they announced my name,” Bullock said. “I did see my parents down on the floor and wondered why they were on the floor, but I was so disappointed that we did not win the game that I really was not thinking about the award. This award is special to me and means a lot. I guess Barr-Reeve has not been known to win state championships, but we have won several of these awards.”

Bullock has recently played in the North/South All-Star Game at Vincennes University and also played in the East/West All-Star Game at Tecumseh.

He said he has some offers to play college basketball and it appears he has recently made the decision to attend Olney Central College in Illinois but the signing has not been announced at this time.
