Cross Country Scotties race in Pierre

by Ralph Kroetch

Entering all four of Philip's cross country girls in the same race would give them their best ever team performance. Eighth grader Holly Iwan, junior Emily Schofield, sophomore Jennifer Stangle and seventh grader Allison Pekron ran in the junior varsity "A" division race.

After a mad-dash start, Iwan fell into third place out of the 34 runners. Schofield settled into 10th and Stangle into 16th, with Pekron in the back of the pack. By the one mile mark, Iwan had moved into the distant lead with only Chamberlain's Burke in close pursuit.

Schofield began in 15th place and Stangle in 24th. No other runners were able to challenge Iwan up the long finish hill. She earned sixth place and a time of 18:20, cutting 40 seconds off of her Kadoka course best.

Philip Scotties football team gives slippery win to Harding County 20-32

The first Philip home game of the season, as well as the first football game played on the newly resurfaced field, was a 20-32 loss for the Scotties.

The Friday, September 12, game against the Harding County Ranchers began with drizzle during the first half and a wet, slippery field throughout the game. Incomplete passes and fumbles were numerous. The first quarter was tied 8-8 and only the Scotties scored in the second half.
