The girls winner was Lindsey Grams of Little Chute with a 20:46.29 effort.

South won the boys meet with 1:36:12.52, followed closely by PHS at 1:36:45.06. HG took seventh (last) in 1:58:19.72 and was paced by junior Sam Sixel who captured 26th in 20:50.47.

“Our athletes had a great night on our home course. The course ran slow due to the wet and warm conditions, so the times were off were we’d want them to be. Both teams competed well,” said PHS head coach Jay Grosshuesch.

“Alan looked real strong in winning the meet. He has really had a great season that will hopefully continue to get better.

Kalei and Ellie [Welsch, fourth place] did a great job leading the way for us,” said Grosshuesch.

“Katie Guse had a fantastic race today,” said Tiger head coach Gary Kalk.

“She was running in sixth place for much of the race but that would change as her final 800 meters was by far the best she’s closed a race this season.

“Her surge in the final phase of the race allowed her to chase down four of the girls in front of her and finish with an outstanding secondplace finish,” said Kalk.

The boys and girls meets included separate races for the Nos. 6-8 runners, 3-5 and 1-2 from each school.
