“We had a nice first meet from both teams. Both groups ran real well despite the hard week of practice we have had,” said Panther head coach Jay Grosshuesch.

“Although we are happy with the wins, we known the season is 10 weeks long and our teams and individuals still aspire to improve and grow.

“We have now established a base-line beginning point and the coaching staff is committed to have each individual get better through continued hard work,” Grosshuesch said.
