PRESCOTT - Something old is something new again with Prescott High School's cross country team this fall. Steve Peterson is the new head coach, replacing Dave Vortherms who is now the PHS principal. But Peterson had been head coach for six seasons prior to Vortherms's recent tenure (and Vortherms had been the head coach before Peterson) and the hand he's been dealt has plenty of new faces as well, but not so old when it comes to cross country experience. "Half of our roster had never run a cross country race before until the River Falls meet," Peterson said.
