The Scotties loaded up for a second race in three days. Strong winds, 58 degree and overcast skies may not seem like ideal conditions, but it proved to be just what the doctor ordered for the Scotties for the Kadoka meet on Saturday, September 8. Again, many personal bests were set and champions were crowned both individually and as a team.

In the varsity boys' race, freshman Zane Pekron, junior Anthony Iwan and freshman Kyle Iwan would compile 38 team points to finish fourth as a team.

Philip's three competitors did not qualify as a team in this high powered "A" division race, but our girls all gave great personal efforts.
