News · Prairie Boys Knock Off #5 Tri-County


After trailing by more than ten in the second half, the CP Boys Basketball team turned up the defensive intensity and upset 1A #5 Tri-County 43-42 at home on Saturday night. After defeating Carroll and Eastern earlier in the week, the boys relied on a balanced scoring attack as Seniors Sam Schoonveld, Collin Stroup, and Mitch Coapstick all tallied double figures for CP. With the victory, the Gophers improved to 11-2 on the season with match ups against county rivals Clinton Central and Rossville scheduled this weekend. The Clinton Central game is part of a girls/boys doubleheader, while the Rossville game was rescheduled after a postponement on January 5th.
