COVID-19 has had a great impact on high school sports across the country. Cross country and golf have been the only two sports that were able to be played in this fall season. Pana’s Brock Schoonover, Jesse Gruber, and Brianna Sarver were just three of those runners who were able to participate this season, but the trio never had an official senior night this season as the Pana program doesn’t host any home meets. Still, the Pana coaching staff wanted to honor its three seniors.

Perry leads cross country Panthers in Carlinville meet
Pana’s Kady Perry was worried she might have lost a step after two weeks of quarantine due to possible COVID-19 exposure. As it turns out, maybe a little time off was just what she needed.

On Tuesday afternoon in Carlinville, Perry turned in a personal best on the cross country path when she finished seventh in the field with a time of 23:20.61; It was about five seconds better than her previous personal best, and she was only about a minute and 45 seconds off the pace of Staunton’s Dana Jarden, who finished first overall.

Panther golfers celebrated on senior night
On a gorgeous afternoon and a packed golf course, the Pana golf team honored its two seniors in Katelyn Townsend and Gabriel Wafford.

“They are both great kids. They excel in the classroom, make good choices, and give great effort at improving their golf game each day,” said Pana head coach Adam Metzger.

Townsend was out for the golf team last season and came back out again this year. MetGer said that he’ll remember her commitment to the golf team the most. “Despite working most days, she comes to golf for every second that she can before heading to work. When able, she stays late to play extra holes or hit on the range,” said Metger.

IHSA rearranges 2020-2021 sports schedule
Twelve days: That is how close Illinois high school students came to their first official day of practice for the 2020 fall seasons. Instead, it will be only golf and cross country that will enjoy a traditional start to the new season.

Following an IHSA decision Wednesday, football, boys soccer, and girls volleyball have been moved to the spring. The IHSA made dozens of other amendments to various other sports as well, but none that are applicable to Christian County athletes.

Many saw the IHSA decision coming after Governor JB Pritzker held a noon press conference yesterday outlining further restrictions for youth and adult recreational sports, including those governed by the IHSA. That announcement from the governor, though, was supposed to coincide with the IHSA’s announcement, according to IHSA Executive Director Craig Anderson.
