PHS competed in the Jamie Block Challenge invitational Saturday morning at West Bend. The girls squad finished 10th in a 23-team field while the boys took 15th out of 20.

The team standings at the in- vitational were determined by the cumulative times of the topfive runners for each school.

Sun Prairie won the girls title with a time of 1 hour, 39 minutes, 14 seconds. PHS totaled 1:47:31 and was led by Kalei Hering who finished 41st overall in 20:53.94.

Matt Meinke of Neenah won the overall boys title in 15:48.98. The boys meet had 550 runners.

“We got our season off to a strong start last week. All our runners have a couple of races behind them,” said PHS head coach Jay Grosshuesch about the Falls and West Bend meets.

“Without exception they all learned a lot about pacing and finishing races. Although we scored pretty well in both, we clearly have some work to do.

“For the girls, Kalei, Amanda [Triebensee] and Ellie have looked real good early on. It is obvious they have put in lots of miles this summer and it has paid off in these early meets,” said Grosshuesch.

“On the boys side, Alan has looked real good, particularly at West Bend, and Max Hassel has performed well in his first two meets as a cross country runner. Noah [Baratka] also got back in his groove at the West Bend meet.”
