Triple jump

Palmyra’s Jansen Juette competes in the triple jump at Clark County last Tuesday.

The PHS girls track and field team finished third out of nine teams at the Clark County Invitational Friday.

The Lady Panthers scored 89 points to place behind only Clark County (117) and Monroe City (115) but ahead of Hamilton/Warsaw (87), Highland (56), Marion County (48), Scotland County (38), Paris (34) and Canton (eight).

“It was a weird night because we had some delays with the timing system and the weather wasn’t helpful,” said Coach Nicholas Koetters. “We did have some good results throughout the night and saw some new season bests.  Overall, I think the girls are figuring things out and we are getting better.”
