The Panther girls opened up the cross country season running at the Viking Stampede in Niles. Going up against some much larger schools and not having the full squad able to compete made it tough as they finished in 6th place. Allie Pazera was the first Panther to emerge from the trails and cross the finish line capturing 11th place overall with a time of 23:18. Jade Miller was the next to finish running a 25:46 for 34th place. Bailey Evans was just a bit back from Jade crossing in 25:55 for 37th place. The girls next race will be Wednesday at the Bridgman Invitational.
