PHS won five consecutive Eastern Wisconsin Conference championships before last year when it captured the inaugural ECC crown.

The Panthers scored 147 points – edging runner-up Berlin by only three.

Berlin successfully defended its girls championship in dominant fashion – outscoring secondplace Winneconne, 182-133. PHS finished third with 104.5.

“Both teams had good meets. Our boys did a great job winning their seventh conference champi onship in a row. We needed every point as we only won by three, so all the boys contributed to the win,” said Panther head coach Jay Grosshuesch.

“Our sprinters had a great night [in the boys meet], led by Jack Benedict and Derek Novotny with strong races in the opens and relays.”

Novotny and Benedict finished 2-3, respectfully, in the 100-meter dash. Benedict ran in the winning 800 relay. Novotny also won the long jump.

Sophomore Gabi Mella had a strong girls meet to lead PHS. Mella won the long jump and was second in the 100 and 200 dashes.

“For the girls we scored well and in many events. We lacked the first-place finishes to put us on top in the meet. Gabi had a great night in the sprints, relays and long jump,” said Grosshuesch.
