“We competed well in these meets but as our team scores attest we have a lot of work to accomplish to get to the level we want to reach,” said Panther head coach Jay Grosshuesch.

“We have many weeks until the big outdoor meets, so we have time but we must make the most of it by working hard and striving to improve.

“For the boys, we had a very nice meet by our sprint group, especially Samuel, Dominic, Evan and Jake who all scored in multiple events. It was nice to see our other athletes compete well as we had numerous guys finish in the top eight, scoring points,” said Grosshuesch.

“Our girls did a nice job in the meet. Our hurdlers and throwers did nice work as we had two athletes score in these events.

“We also had another strong meet out of Sophie Albert with a nice run in the 400, and Emma Grapentine hit a PR [personal record] in the high jump,” said the coach.
