Boys’ track

At Rochelle: Princeton placed seventh (26) in an eight-team field in Saturday’s Hub Relays headed by Belvidere North (117). PHS placed third in both weight events on the strength of Cody Griffin, Jordan Sissel and Trevor Bickett. The Tigers top individual finishes were fifths taken by Drew Pranka in the pole vault (10-0)). PHS placed fifth in the 4X400 F/S relay and sixth in the 4x100 and 4x400 varsity relays and 4x100 and 4x200 F/S relays.

“It was another of our nice blustery days here this spring. Performances sure correlated with the weather,” said PHS coach Dan Foes, noting there were quicker turnarounds between events because of the weather.
