Bobbie Jo Delphey-Barber
A graduate of Catoctin High School, Bobbi Jo Delphey-Barber was an outstanding athlete in basketball, cross country, and track and field. As a freshman, her track talent became evident as she qualified for state competition in the high jump, intermediate and high hurdles, and triple jump. This same year she began her four-year reign as High Jump 1-A State Champion, a feat that as of 2011 had not been repeated in state games. Delphey-Barber was also the county, MVAL, and regional champion in the high jump those four years. She was selected three years to First Team All-County, MVAL First Team, and First Team All-Area. For two consecutive years, she was chosen the Frederick News-Post’s female field athlete. She expressed her love of sports through her unselfish efforts to expand female sports opportunities within the Catoctin community.
