Bengals News · Blake Alumni – College Report

We are introducing a new feature on our website – a weekly update on how Blake Bengal alumni are faring in college athletics. Below is a recap of how some of our Bengals did this past week in college sports. It was a relatively light week, as colleges are still transitioning from Fall to Winter sports and some took a break from competition for Thanksgiving.

A complete list of Bengal alumni currently participating at the college level can be found here. If anyone is missing from the list, please contact Mr. Jared Fribush, Athletic Director at Blake.
