HAMMOND - Prescott High School's girls team won first place in a meet at St. Croix Central Thursday. 

PHS edged Baldwin-Woodville 75.5 to 69.5 for first place. Spring Valley's girls team finished fifth in the nine-team meet. It was their first meet of the season.


No field events took place. PHS won due to their depth in the distance races.
