The PHS Panthers finished ninth in the North Raider Invitational girls and boys meets Friday and Saturday, respectively. The Elkhart Resorters also competed in both invitationals – finishing 11th in the girls meet and 12th in the boys.

Slinger won the girls title with 112 points and Kiel was second at 96. PHS tallied 34 and Elkhart had 20.

The Panthers were led by sophomore Sophie Bolich who earned second in the 3,200-meter run with a time of 12 minutes, 19.75 seconds and junior Mary Albert who was second in the 55 hurdles in 10.09.

The Resorters’ top place-winner in the girls meet was freshman Sonia Schubert with a third in the 55 dash in 8.03 seconds.

Little Chute was the boys champion with 110 points. The Panthers scored 24 and Elkhart, three.

PHS was led by the following fourth-place finishers: junior Evan Sebranek in the 200 dash in 25.99; senior Ben Albers, 55 hurdles, 8.76; and senior Westley Meinnert in the shot put with a 45-2½ effort.

Junior Logan Knepfel paced the Resorters with a seventh-place finish in the 55 hurdles in 8.88.

“These early-season meets are really just ‘fun practices’ for us,” said PHS head coach Jay Grosshuesch.

“For many of our field event people it is the first time they have been able to do their event because of our lack of indoor facilities, and we have only been able to use our track four times so far this season. We don’t put a lot of stock into our performance in these meets.

“We do use them as a measuring stick as to where our athletes are early in the season and as a basis for improvement that we will look for as the season progresses. Given this, both teams performed well,” Grosshuesch said.

“I was impressed with the ladies’ performance. We took a handful of points and set a few personal records,” said Resorter head coach Chris Petrie about the Raider meets.

“The guys gave great effort. Knepfel took a big step in his hurdle form progressions that should help pay dividends later in the year.”

PHS participated in the Oshkosh Boys Large School Invitational Tuesday at UW-Oshkosh. The Panthers took 16th with four points. Green Bay Preble won the 19-team meet with 80.

Scoring the Panthers’ team points was the 800 relay which finished fifth in 1:38.88. The relay included Dominic Bocchini, Samuel Staehling, Andrew Staehling and Sebranek.

Elkhart competed in the Oshkosh Boys Small School Invitational Thursday at UW-Oshkosh. Knepfel earned second in the 60 hurdles in 9.75 to pace the Resorters. The final team standings were unavailable at press time.
