PHS Sports Sidelines by Kathleen Sullivan

The Panguitch Volleyball team had a great week. They had their first away game last week on the 6th against the Valley Buffaloes. Even though the Buffaloes gave them a hard game, the ladies were able to win the first three sets, giving them the win. The scores for the sets were 25-13, 25-21, and 25-19. The Bobcats were on fire with their hitting in that game. With a kill percent of 43.2%, they ranked up 38 kills. Taylia Norris had a total of 11 kills while Karlee Eyre and Jordan Bennett both had 9 total kills. The teams serving was also pretty good with a serving percent at 83.6%. With a total of 12 aces, McCall Tebbs and Taylia Norris both had 3 aces a piece. This week, the girls have a home game against the Water Canyon Wildcats on Wednesday the 13th. They then travel to Piute on Friday the 15th to go head to head once again against the T-Birds. They played Piute on the 30th of August on home turf and was able to take the win. We will have to see how this game goes.

On the 2nd of September, the Cross Country team traveled to the Utah County Invite. With only 3 girls and 3 boys competing at that meet, they did pretty well. Taylia Norris took 2nd  of 200 runners and Porter Schoppe was 17th out of 275 runners. Last week the team only had one meet and it was right here in Panguitch on Thursday the 7th. The total amount of kids that ran was 73. We had 16 boys and 21 girls from Panguitch run. Both teams did extremely well.From the girls Taylia Norris took 1st, Corryn Andersen came in 3rd, Brittney Henrie was 6th, Camri Fisher was 7th, Jordan Bennett was 9th, Tana Frandsen was 10th and Kapri Orton was 11th. That was the tops six from Panguitch. The girls team won the meet. For the boys, Porter Schoppe took 1st, Luke Reeder was 2nd, Hagen Miller was 3rd, Kaden Beckstead was 4th, Zack Julander was 6th, Bosten Englestead was 7th, and Keston Matthew was 8th. The boys also won the meet with a perfect score of 10. This week, they travel to Piute on the 14th. They then  go up north for the BYU County Invite on the 16th.

Last week, the Panguitch Baseball team once again had a split week. On the 6th, they hosted the Bryce Valley Mustangs. They were able to take the win, beating the Mustangs by 10 with a score of 12-2. Later on in the week, on the 8th, the team traveled to Piute. They lost that game 11-6. This week, they team has three away games. On the 13th, they travel to Valley to play the Buffaloes. They then will travel all the way to Green River on the 15th. Finally, they go to Bryce Valley for the Sophomore Tournament on the 16th. They should all be good games so hopefully you go to cheer the boys on.
