After a long day of waiting the EP Panther relay team took a second shot at a medal in the finals of the 2A 4 x 400 meter relay. For seniors Kody Wetzell, Kerrick Cameron, and Connor Reiley it would be there last lap on the track as high schoolers; they made it memorable.
A year ago freshman Kyle Kruthoff brought home the 8th place medal in the 2A pole vault at the IHSA State Track Finals. As all athletes, Kruthoff was hoping to better that placement this year after qualifying for the finals yesterday.
Coming in with the fastest time on paper doesn't always translate at the state track finals, as the Panthers found out this weekend in Charleston, but they still ran their best time of the season as the 4 x 800 relay took fifth on Saturday morning.
