We entered the meet down two athletes but our kids pulled together real well,” said Panther head coach Jay Grosshuesch.

“Just about every athlete we entered in the meet scored and fortunately the points all added together to get us the victory.

“Our girls competed real well. We knew it would be a tight meet, and we thought we could go anywhere from first to fifth,” said Grosshuesch.

“We are pleased with a solid second place. We also had just about every athlete score for us.”
