  • For her first three years of high school, senior Kaylah Romine toiled in the shadow of PHS stellar distance runner Cheyenne Becker. In this her senior campaign, Romine is poised to garner some well-deserved recognition of her own.
    In the rescheduled Chaparral Invitational Monday, Romine again bested the field to pocket her second gold medal on the season.
    Romine completed the course around Anthony Lake in 16:30.
    "That was the highlight of the meet for us," Pratt High crosscountry coach Kathy Hitz said. "Overall, we were a little flat. Having a meet rescheduled gets us out of our training routine. We didn't have any great times or anything because the course is a slow one with soft footing. But the kids competed well."
    Other medalists for Pratt included Zach Claussen, 2nd in freshmen boys race (4K) with a 17:43.
    Ruth Anthony (9, 17:44), Nichole Moreland (12, 18:26) and Cassidy Cronister (18, 19:26) joined Romine on the varsity girls medal stand.
    Brendan Pribil (13, 19:37) and Joseph Loomis (15, 19:43) medaled on boys varsity.
    The Greenback harriers have a fast turnaround this week, challenging the Lake Afton dam in the Goddard Invite on Thursday.
