The Pekin girls took home the SEISC title for the 12th year in a row Thursday at Twin Lakes Golf Club in Winfield.

The Panthers came into the conference meet with high hopes and as heavy favorites.

“They came to run and they were focused,” Pekin coach Davis Eidahl said.” [The girls] are starting to peak.”

This is the 29th girls conference title for Pekin. The top five Pekin girls, which at this meet were Gwynne Wright, Taylor Lock, Shea Dahlstrom, Sloan Reighard and Bonnie Becker, each made all-conference.

The Pekin boys finished in seventh place. Austin Fariss finished in eighth place and received all-conference honors.

“[The boys] all ran a personal best,” Eidahl said. “They are starting to turn the corner.”

The team now has two weeks to get ready for districts.

The Van Buren Warriors finished ninth in boys and eighth for girls. Unity Daugherty ran the best time for the Warriors.
