Panther Track and Field opened up the NLC season with two tough losses to Goshen and Northridge. The Panthers highlight performance of the night was capturing all three places in the 100m dash (Brayton Yoder, Landon Parker, Terrell Pratcher) and long jump (Bronson Yoder, Terell Pratcher, Austin Shapland). Other top individual placers in the double-duel meet was Garrett Griffin, Caleb Darr, Jacob Stump, Caleb Newcomer, Bronson Yoder and Austin Shapland. The 400m relay team (Landon Parker, Terrell Pratcher, Bronson Yoder, Brayton Yoder) was the top relay finisher. Hard work is paying off for several Junior Varsity runners with personal bests both on the track and in field events. Next week’s schedule includes another double duel meet at Elkhart Memorial with Concord. On Saturday the Panthers will look to defend their 2016 team championship at the 75th running of the Historic Goshen Relays.
