PHS teams compete well at Manitowoc Invite

MANITOWC – Head coach Jay Grosshuesch was pleased with the Plymouth boys and girls teams’ performances in Saturday morning’s rugged Manitowoc Cross Country Invitational.

The Panther girls placed seventh in the 13-team meet with 179 points. PHS was missing its No. 1 runner, Sophie Bolich, due to an injury. Freshman Amanda Triebensee paced the Panthers with a 28th-place finish in 20 minutes, 53.20 seconds over 3.1 miles.

PHS took 11th in the 15-team boys meet with 277 points. The Panthers were led by senior Ian McConnaha who earned 15th in 16:58.30 on the 3.1-mile course.

“Our athletes ran very well. Both teams are really showing great depth as the gap within our top-five-scoring runners is quite small,” said Grosshuesch.

“Amanda ran a real strong race to lead us. Ian also ran a race with a confident charge in the latter part of the race.”

Stevens Point won the boys meet with 42 points. Alec Basten of Green Bay Southwest captured first in 15:51.25.

Appleton North ran away with the girls title, outscoring runner-up Brookfield East, 36-102. North had four runners in the top nine overall, led by freshman Sydney Squier who took first in 18:39.90.
