SHEBOYGAN FALLS – Plymouth continued its dominance in the boys competition at the Vanderpan Track Invitational with an impressive first-place finish here Friday.

It marked the eighth straight Vanderpan title for the Panthers. They ran away with the championship – outscoring runner-up Waupun, 176½-122½. In the girls meet, PHS captured the title over host and county arch-rival Sheboygan Falls with 159 points, edging out the Falcons who tallied 154½.

PHS also took first in the coed standings for an impressive eighth straight year – combining for 335½ points.

“Our boys and girls teams competed very well. Our goal was to win both titles and we were proud to accomplish just that,” said Panther head coach Jay Grosshuesch.

“It was a great team effort by both teams as just about every athlete entered in the meet scored.”

Sophomore Sophie Bolich won the 1,600- and 3,200-meter races to lead the way for the PHS girls. Bolich was named the top female athlete at the 44th Vanderpan.

The PHS boys didn’t have any individual double-winners but won three events and finished in the top three in 13 events.

“For our boys, our sprinters and mid-distance group did a fantastic job,” said Grosshuesch.

“For the girls, our distance runners and sprinters were real big contributors. Sophie Bolich, Julia Novotny, Karly Knaus, Brooke Koehn and Abby Payne again scored in at least two events to lead our team.”

The Panther girls finished 1-2-3 in the 1,600 run.

The Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah Resorters finished seventh in the girls meet with 37 points. The Resorter boys were eighth at 23.

Elkhart had two winners, both in the girls meet – Emily Holzmann in the 100 high hurdles and Sonia Schubert in the long jump. Schubert, a freshman, was second in the triple jump.
