Mitschke Runs at State

AUSTIN-On May 11, PHS Junior Maddie Mitschke finished a successful season by running in the 300 meter hurdles race at the State Track Meet, finishing eighth. We have photos of the event here.

On May 10, the school had a sendoff for Maddie. See the photo gallery here.

Mitschke Qualifies for State

On April 28 at the regional track meet in Abilene, PHS Junior Maddie Mitschke qualified for the state meet in the 300 meter hurdles. The State Track Meet would be held on Friday, May 11 at the University of Texas at Austin.

Panthers Compete at Regionals

Over the weekend of April 27-28, several boys and girls traveled to Abilene to compete in a very competitive Regional Track meet. Both teams did a good job representing themselves and our community. Congratulations to Maddie Mitschke for making it to State, and a special shout-out to Hannah Beth Pearson who ended her High School career running her guts out in both the 3200 and the 1600.

The boys were represented by Reggie Contreras, Avery Cobb, Angus Pace (Senior), and Lane Stevens (Bryson Clark was alternate) on the 400 meter relay. They did not advance to the finals, but they had an outstanding year.

Matthew Eisen made it to his second Regionals as a Sophomore. Competing in the 1600, he did not have his best day, but we fully expect him to return to compete for state next year.

Bonner Brackeen came into his first Regional meet with the fourth-best time in the 110 hurdles going into the meet. He made the finals with the second best time from pre-lims. In the finals, he bumped a couple of hurdles pushing to get to Austin which slowed him down. He will be a force next year as a Junior.

Lane Stevens came out for track for the first time as a Junior, won the JV 100 by about 30 meters, then went on to win gold and silver medals as a varsity sprinter every meet since then. He came into the Regional meet with the third best time from Area, stumbled out of the blocks, but still made it to the finals with the 7th best time. He ended up finishing 5th in the finals. He will come back next year as a Senior stronger and with a knowledge he did not have this year.

Panthers Compete at Area Meet

On April 16, PHS competed at the Area Meet in Jacksboro and several girls and boys advanced to Regionals. Here are the results:

The sprint relay (4 x 100) of Reggie Contreras, Avery Cobb, Angus Pace, and Lane Stevens qualified for the Regional meet. They ran their fastest time of the year. They came into the meet with a season-best time of 44.93 and were sitting 6th out of 8 teams. They ran a 44.88 yesterday and got 4th.

Lane Stevens ran his fastest time of the year and is going to Regionals in the 100 meter dash. He ran a 11.34 at District - he ran a 11.15 at area.

Bonner Brackeen also ran his fastest time in the 110 hurdles and is going to Regionals. He had a 15.49 at district and ran a 15.15 at area.

Matthew Eisen equaled his fastest time and qualified in the 1600 and quialified for Regionals. He ran a 4:48.66 at District, he ran a 4:48.46 at area.
