Our runners competed very well,” said Panther head coach Jay Grosshuesch.

“We are proud of the girls who won their third straight county title and did so with great races from all seven girls. We had our top five in the top 13 of all the runners and with less than a one- minute gap between the five.

“Our top three continue to run very well, and we got great races from Karly [Knaus] and Olivia [Jankowski]. Sheila [Anzures] and Sara [Darr] also beat many of the top fives on other teams,” said Grosshuesch.

“Our boys ran one of their better meets of the season. Tom and Ian [McConnaha] continue to run well and had strong finishes to their races.

We need to work on moving our 3-5 runners up in the pack to score better as a team,” added Grosshuesch.

“We had a fairly decent showing today,” said Tiger head coach Gary Kalk. “Yet, many Tiger runners will probably tell you they are leaving the Lutheran course knowing they’ve had better performances.

“We really missed Morgan Edge and Noelle Eschen, who are both out with injuries. They’re top-five runners [for the girls team] who add talent, depth and experience to the ladies team.”
