Big workouts don't hold back Panther runners
St. Croix Central coach Bill Emery was worried that a week of hard workouts leading into last Thursday's New Richmond Invitational would leave the Panthers with little energy for the race.
The Panthers may not have been at their most crisp, but there was enough energy left for the Panther boys to earn the meet championship. They narrowly edged out Ellsworth and Amery. Central's boys finished the meet with 81 points followed by Ellsworth with 85 and Amery with 86.
