The PHS girls track and field team took second place at the Gary Ewing Invitational in Brookfield Friday, falling just five and a half points behind first-place Marceline.
“It was a good day over all at Brookfield,” said Coach Nicholas Koetters. “We weren’t at full strength but that didn’t stop them from doing well.
“We have some positions to figure out and some things to clean up going forward if we want to make history.”
