News · This Week in Prairie Athletics- 2/3

Here are the latest news and notes from Prairie Athletics…

  • The Girls Basketball team wrapped up an undefeated HHC Conference season for the second straight season with an 11-point victory over Clinton Central on Friday night. The Lady Gophers enter the Class 2A Sectional 38 at Sheridan with an overall record of 19-3 and will face the 16-7 Central Catholic Knights. The Gophers dropped a 5-point game at LCC earlier in the season and are looking to avenge that loss on Tuesday night at 6:00pm. The doors at Sheridan will open at 5pm. Those students interested in riding the fan bus should see Mr. Allen with $6 by Tuesday at noon! The $6 will cover the ticket and allow for a quicker entry. The fan bus departs Prairie at 4:50 with pizza being provided by the Athletic Department for all those who have purchased a ticket ahead of time. Sectional Semi-finals are held on Friday night and the Championship on Saturday night.
  • The Boys Basketball team also picked up a big win (72-42) over Clinton Central on Friday night to remain undefeated in HHC play. The victory sets up a showdown at Rossville this Thursday night in what will likely determine the HHC Championship. The Boys also host North White on Saturday afternoon with a 1:00pm JV start. The Saturday game is also the Youth Cheer Clinic hosted by the high school Cheerleaders.
  • The Wrestling team was able to advance three individuals to the North Montgomery Regional this Saturday. Advancing are Seniors Mathew Schilling (220lbs- Sectional Runner-up) and Jason Stevens (195lbs- 4th place) and Junior Sean Patrick (285lbs- 4th place)
  • A reminder to all clubs, activities, and sports sponsors/coaches that the CP Athletic Booster Club Bowl-A-Thon forms are due on Thursday of this week to guarantee a lane. Starting Friday, the remaining lanes will be opened up to other groups in the Clinton Prairie Community. The Bowl-A-Thon will be held Sunday, February 23rd at Arrowhead Bowl in Lafayette.
