BHHS Track Stars Shine at State Meet

Alex Rohani took first place in the boys 400m and Brianna Simmons placed seventh in the girls 1600m.

Two runners placed in the top 10 of their events at the CIF State Championship track and field finals over the weekend.

BHHS junior Alex Rohani took first in the boys 400m with a time of 47.34, a new school record that earned him All-State and All-American honors. He is ranked No. 32 in the United States in the 400m. Rohani is the first Norman track and field state champion and just the second state champion in the school's history.

"Alex Rohani is a great competitor, great teammate and an absolute joy to coach," BHHS track coach Jeff Fisher said. "He earned a state championship and will only get better from here. We look forward to his continued excellence in our program."

BHHS senior Brianna Simmons took seventh place in the girls 1600m with a time of 4:56:96. Not only did she earn All-State track honors, but she also made the All-State team for cross country.

"Brianna is All-State this year in two sports after finishing in seventh place in the girls 1600m," Fisher said. "That is a fine representation of a multi-sport athlete. We are exited to follow her progress as she will represent the University of California-Riverside next year."

Fisher, once a , took over the head coaching positions for both the BHHS track and cross country programs in 2009.

"The young student-athletes in our cross country and track and field programs continue to raise the bar through hard work, dedication and preparation," Fisher said. "They are phenomenal young people and we are extremely proud of them." 

Congratulations to Alex Rohani and Brianna Simmons on their performances at the state meet!
