Scotties fall to Jones Co., 20-0

Blockers and runners ... Jade Berry (#43) got in early season blocking practice as teammate Cody Reder got in some rushing experience during the opening game against Jones County, September 2.

The Philip High School Scotties football team competed in its first game of the 2011 season, Friday, September 2. Before a home crowd, their first test ended as a defeat by the Jones County Coyotes 0-20.

The Coyotes kicked off the game with a short wobbler that put the Scotties mid-field. Philip began a charge that entailed three first-downs, but were stopped at their one-foot line with loss of possession. Jones County's return charge was stymied, and ended with a punt. Philip came back to the two-foot mark, but first-game fouls pushed them back.

Scotties at Faith's cross country meet

Solid start ... The beginning of the girls’ junior varsity run.

The Philip Scotties were back in action at the Ryan Day Memorial Cross Country Meet at Durkee Lade, south of Faith, Friday, September 2.

Though the season is young, ending week 2 of the season, these smaller local meets give us a good sense of how the Scotties stack up with our conference and regional competition.

With lake side temps in the 60s and a light southerly breeze, the day's conditions helped bring out quality performances from many of the day's competitors.

The first races of the day were elementary one-mile runs for boys and girls, grades one through six.
