Panthers compete well at North Invite meets

SHEBOYGAN – The Plymouth Panthers competed well in the boys and girls Sheboygan North Invitational indoor meets last weekend.

The girls meet was held Friday evening and the boys competition was on Saturday.

“Our athletes competed real well at these meets. With a large number of schools in the meet and some real solid individuals across the board the meet was a good test for our teams,” said Panther head coach Jay Grosshuesch.

“We found out that we have some work to do but our kids are working hard and we expect to make considerable improvement as the season progresses.”

The Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah Resorters and the Howards Grove Tigers also competed in the girls meet. Oak Creek won the 22- team meet with 89.5 points. EL-G and Port Washington tied for sixth with 39 each. PHS was 15th with 15 points and HG took 19th with seven.

HG also participated in the boys field. Oak Creek won the 17- team meet with 130 points. PHS finished eighth with 28 and HG was 15th at six.

The PHS girls were led by Cece Huhn who placed sixth in the high jump with a 4-10 performance.

Elkhart was paced by Camrie Schmitz who won the 200-meter dash in 28.02 seconds. The Resorters had one second-place finisher, Sonia Schubert, in the 55 high hurdles in 9.23.

The Tiger girls’ top finisher was Kjersten Grinna with a fourth in the 400 dash in 1:07.87.

In the boys competition, PHS was led by Jaxsen Schermacher who placed second in the pole vault with a 12-0 effort. The Panthers had three other top-four finishers – Mack Mella, fourth in the 400 in 57.13; Jack Nytes, fourth, shot put, 42-6¾; and the 3,200 relay which took fourth in 9:18.03. The relay included Mason Guell, Alex Kelly, Adam Smith and Luke Schneider.

The Tigers were paced by Noah Bramstedt who earned fourth in the 55 dash in 6.96.

“For our girls, Cece had a great night in the high jump, starting out where she left off last year. Our middle-distance and distance runners had solid performances as well, led by Sophie Albert, Amanda Triebensee, Lauren Rabe, Izzy Kastelic, Hanna Eigenberger and Margeaux Suttner,” said Grosshuesch.

“For the boys, Jaxsen Schermacher and Jack Nytes started their seasons off real well. Our 3,200 relay started the meet out in a great way and Mason Guell, Mack Mella and Charlie Waitkus had strong individual races as well.”
