The PHS won three events – Jake Schneider in the 200-meter dash in 22.62 seconds; Zach Albers, 300 intermediate hurdles at 41.46; and the 800 relay of Samuel Staehling, Dominic Bocchini, Evan Sebranek and Schneider in 1 minute, 29.94 seconds.

The Panther girls were led by Sophie Bolich who was the team’s only winner as she captured the 3,200 run in 11:32.05, and also placed second in the 1,600 race. Mary Albert also had a good meet – contributing second-place finishes in the 100 high hurdles and 300 low hurdles.

Fond du Lac ran away with first place in the eight-team boys meet with 184 points. The Panthers were third with 103.

Slinger earned the girls title with 128 points. PHS captured fifth with 89 in the eight-team field.

The top-four finishers in each regional event qualify for the sectional meet Friday at Beaver Dam, starting at 4:15 p.m.

“We had a great night in a very competitive meet,” said Panther head coach Jay Grosshuech.

“Our sprinters and jumpers had strong efforts for the boys. Jake and Samuel [Staehling] ran real well in the 100 and 200. Our 1,600 relay also ran some real strong legs in their qualifying effort. Zach Albers ran a great personal record in the 300 hurdles.

“Gavin [Falk] and Derek [Novotny] jumped real well [in the long jump] in the wet conditions. Samuel qualified for sectionals in four events which is quite a feat for any athlete,” said Grosshuesch.

“Mary Albert ran her best races of the year in the hurdles.

“We are excited about the large group that is going to sectionals. We expect the competition to be ramped up even more on Friday but we look forward to seeing how our athletes can stack up against the best Division 1 track and field athletes in our area,” added the coach.
