Cross country teams travel to Eagle Butte; host own meet

Philip at Eagle Butte

The Scottie cross country team traveled to Cheyenne Eagle Butte on Tuesday, Oct. 5, to compete in the C.E.B. Invitational and Three Rivers Conference Champion-ships. Both races are scored during the one meet.

Our first race was the girls’ varsity. Thirty-one runners started. This is an “A” Division race, so all six girls ran varsity today. Early in the race, Maggie Coyle led the Scotties with Jackie Smith directly behind her in 15th and 16th places. Katie Coyle followed in 22nd place.

Hospital auxiliary has regrouped and is growing strong

After almost disbanding several years ago, the Philip Health Services Auxiliary has grown to include 58 active members and 20 official sponsor members.

Coinciding with the creation of the new hospital, the membership and activities multiplied. A $10,000 pledge toward construction of the hospital has already been paid in full. The “woman of the prairie” wood carving in front of the Silverleaf Assisted Nursing Home was commissioned and completed.

Scotties lose to Timber Lake, 14-55

The Scotties had a good first quarter at the Timber Lake football game last Friday night, but the rest of the game was not as enjoyable.

Philip’s Dana Kerns ran for one yard to earn the first touchdown of the game, and the only touchdown of the first quarter. The extra point attempt failed.

The second quarter saw 35 points gained by Timber Lake. The third quarter saw eight more points for Philip, and six more points for Timber Lake. In the last quarter, Timber Lake gained another 14 points.

Cross Country keeps running

This was a varsity-only “A” Division race, thus giving three Scotties their first varsity competition in 2004. An “A” Division team consists of 6 runners; the first 4 are counters, while the next two are pushers to break any scoring ties. The lower the team score, the better. The first 15 places earn medals.
