Centre?The Cougars were scheduled to compete at the Council Grove Invitational Thursday, but it was canceled because of weather and will not be rescheduled.

The Cougars did participate in the Central Christian CKTL Quint at Buhler last Tuesday.

The Cougars were scheduled to compete at the Marion CKTL meet Tuesday, then will compete at the Herington Invitational May 3.

Peabody-Burns?The Warriors competed at the Haven CKTL meet Tuesday.

The boys placed second among five teams with 79 points. Lucas Larsen led the way with two first-place finishes: discus (132 feet even) and shot put (40-3).

?It was a great team meet as the boys scored points in nearly every event,? coach Brian Lightner said.

The girls claimed fourth place with 13 points. Leading the way was the 4×800 team of Brandee Burnett, Karolina Ganko, Carlee Wentworth and Kenzie Young, with a second-place finish (13:02.0).

?Nine personal records were set, and the girls continue to improve in their events,? Lightner said.
