Centre?Centre?s competition at the Steve Herrmann Hering?ton Invitational Thursday was rescheduled for Saturday.

The boys placed ninth with 21 points. Peabody-Burns won the meet with 96.

Two second-place finishes fueled the Cougars: Grant Srajer in the long jump (17 feet, 11.5 inches) and the 4×100 team of Srajer, Justin Deines, Conner Montgomery and Houston Svoboda (49.9 seconds).

?Strong performances in the field events and hurdles provided a majority of the points for the Warriors,? coach Brian Lightner said. ?Despite near-freezing wind chills and rain, the guys competed well, and it is a great thing for Peabody-Burns High School to win a larger meet.?

The Warrior girls, meanwhile, placed seventh among nine teams with 16 points.

The 4×800 team of Angelica Winsor, Brandee Burnett, Jenny Kimmeskamp and Kenzie Young led the way with a second-place finish (13:02.2).
