“It was some great competition for our athletes and we responded real well,” said PHS head coach Jay Grosshuesch.

“Many if our runners and field athletes set some personal records at this meet. It was real encouraging to see our kids step up to the high level of competition and produce strong performances.

“Our girl and boy mid-distance runners particularly ran real well, as did our girl distance runners and boy sprinters. We also had quality meets from our throwers and long jumpers,” said Grosshuesch.
