Philip boys take third place as a team at state cross country meet

Records broken ... Back row, from left: Tristen Rush, Blake Martinez, Zane Pekron, William Coyle, Kelvin Ferguson and coach Ralph Kroetch. Front: Allison Pekron, Holly Iwan and student manager Sam Stangle. The boys took third as a team, Philip’s best ever as a “B” school. Only the top 25 places at the state cross country meet earn medals. After various years each, Coyle, Z. Pekron and Iwan are in an elite circle of only five multiple state medal winners from Philip. This year, Iwan took eighth place, Z. Pekron took 21st, and Coyle took 13th place.

The Philip Scottie cross country team completed a highlight-filled 2010 season on Huron's Broadland Golf Course Saturday, October 24.

Holly Iwan was one of 110 entries in the girls' state "B" race, which began under cloudy skies and in a light breeze on a 60 degree day. All races began with a 400-plus meter straight, before a strong right-hand turn that has pushed many runners back as they attempt to navigate the turn.

Haakon County Public Library's Fall Affair benefit social and auction a success

The Fall Affair fundraiser Saturday, October 23, at the Philip American Legion Hall was a success, according to Annie Brunskill, librarian of the Haakon County Public Library.

"The Fall Affair went very well and we were all very pleased with the entire event," said Brunskill. "We had about 80 people attending and had 50 live auction items and 30 silent auction baskets. We raised just over $5,200. That money will be put into a foundation in order to cover the extra operating expenses that will arise when we eventually move to the K-Gee's building.
