PHS won seven of the 18 events, including two sprint races (100- and 200-meter dashes) and a pair of sprint relays (400 and 800), en route to racking up 178 points. Berlin finished second with 122.

The Panthers have won an outstanding six straight conference titles, with the previous five in the Eastern Wisconsin Conference.

In the girls competition, the Panthers placed second – edging Kettle Moraine Lutheran (Jackson), 123½-122. Berlin took first with 153.

Seniors Samuel Staehling and Jake Schneider led the PHS boys’ sprints. Staehling won the 100 in 11.00 seconds and Schneider was second.

Schneider took first in the 200 in 22.45, with Staehling placing second.

Staehling and Schneider ran in the winning 400 and 800 relays, respectfully.

“Our boys had a great meet, with points scored in many events – running and field,” said PHS head coach Jay Grosshuesch.

“Our sprinters had a great day with big points in the opens and relays. We also scored real well in the jumps [long, triple and high] and the pole vault.”

The PHS girls won three events – Lauren Rabe in the 400 race, Sophie Bolich in the 3,200 run and the 1,600 relay with Sophie Albert, Hanna Eigenberger, Rabe and Margeaux Suttner.

“The girls also had a great night. Our sprinters and relay teams did quite well and Sophie Bolich turned in great races in the distances, as did Lauren Rabe in the mid-distances,” said Grosshuesch.

“Kyra had another good night in the throws.”

Kronberg placed second in the discus and fifth in the shot put.
