4-H tractor drivers win high honors at Indiana State Fair

The Purdue Cooperative Extension office in Bartholomew County is reporting that we have some top-notch tractor drivers in the community.

Seven community students took part in the tractor competition at the Indiana State Fair last week competing against 180 youth from all over Indiana

Daniel Murphy won the championship in the senior lawn tractor category and defended his 2017 championship in senior zero turn tractors. Joel Murphy was reserve champion in the junior zero turn category. Winning blue ribbons in their categories were Brendan Boewe, Joel Beck, Wyatt Romine, Heidi Murphy and John Beck.

Bartholomew County had the highest number of rankings of any county at the state level, according to the extension office.
