Albers was clocked in 8.59 seconds. Schermacher’s best vault was 12-0. Nytes placed with his 44-5 performance.

The Panthers, who weren’t at full strength, scored 36 points. Oak Creek won the 16-team meet with 122.

The Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah Resorters were last with one point. The Resorters’ only place-winner was Kyle Lutzke who took eighth in the 400 dash in 58.81.

PHS and Elkhart competed in the Sheboygan North Invitational girls indoor meet Friday. The teams shared 13th place with 15 points each in their season openers. Kiel was the champion with 84.

Junior Sonia Schubert paced the Resorters with a first-place effort in the long jump at 16-8¼. Schubert accounted for Elkhart’s other points with a fourth in the 55 dash in 7.86.

PHS, which also didn’t have its full lineup, was led by junior Gwen Nytes and freshman Lauren Rabe who finished third in the 400 race and pole vault, respectively. Nytes had an 8-0 performance. Rabe had a time of 1 minute, 8.4 seconds.

The PHS girls’ other place-winner was Kyra Kronberg with a sixth in the shot put at 33-4.

Plymouth’s other place-winners in the boys meet included: Mason Guell, fifth in the 400 with 57.79; Corby Gafney, eighth, 1,600, 5:00.94; 1,600 relay, fourth; 4:01.46; and Kyle Birenbaum, seventh in the shot put at 41-4¾. The relay members were Albers, Gafney, Guell and Alex Kelly.

“Our squads did a nice job in these first meets for many of our athletes. We had many athletes out of town, so both lineups were limited but it was good to get some kids some times and distances,” said Panther head coach Jay Grosshuesch.

“We competed well and now have a starting point on which to improve upon.”

“Overall, it went as well as I expected it to this early in the season,” said new Resorter head coach Joe Greuel.

“The boys team has a lot of potential but needs some more work. I was impressed with Kyle Lutzke’s efforts in the 400-meter run and long jump.

“As for the girls, from what I saw after one meet, they should do well. Sonia Schubert is off to a good start,” said Greuel.

The Elkhart boys team’s opener was Thursday in the Oshkosh Invitational Small School Meet in UW-Os- hkosh’s Kolf Center. Andrew Sitko was the Resorters’ only place-winner as he earned sixth in the 3,200 run in 11:25.78.
