The PHS girls track and field team finished second in Saturday’s district meet in Monroe City and qualified for this Saturday’s sectionals in 15 events.
“The girls did amazing,” said Coach Nicholas Koetters, whose team fell just 1.75 points from winning districts.
“I am even more proud considering we were missing three girls because of injuries, and if we had them we easily would have won the meet,” Koetters said. “But we are moving on with 15 entries for sectionals and that’s phenomenal.
“The girls gutted out some great races, and I think we are into a good position to move forward this Saturday.”
