PHS finished second in the EWC race by only one point to Kohler, a team the Panthers defeated earlier in the season, 4-3. Kohler scored 41 points, followed by PHS with 40, Kewaskum, 39 and Howards Grove, 36. Each individual match win during the EWC dual season counts one point.

“It was pretty close but Kohler comes out with the conference title. We had a number of matches during the season that could have gone either way – some we won, some we lost – but in the end I’m extremely proud of the way our guys played,” said Panther head coach Clare Sedlacek.

I believe this group of guys will be the team to beat next year.”

PHS has only one senior on this year’s varsity team.

The Panthers ended their regular season with a 7-6 overall dual record. PHS will compete in a Division 2 subsectional meet Tuesday, May 26 at the Sports Core in Kohler, starting at 9 a.m.

In junior varsity play, PHS won all four of the matches versus Waupun. Winning singles matches were Joey Osieczanek and Joey Sebranek. The doubles winners included Andrew Schmitt and Isaac Fintak, and the duo of Zach Zahn and Jack Sacket.

The PHS JV played against Kewaskum Tuesday. Winning for PHS were Prem Patel in singles and the doubles teams of Connor McManus and Mitch Heun, Schmitt and Fintak, and Asher Marcom and Sebranek.
