  • The Wrestling team competed in the Clinton County Tournament last night at Frankfort. Braden Mullendore and Drew Duarte took home individual championships while several Gophers just missed out. As a team, the Gophers went 1-2 on the night with a victory over Rossville. This weekend the Gophers will travel to Rochester for the McKee Invitational. Following Winter Break the Gophers will travel to Sheridan on January 6th for a dual with the host Blackhawks before competing in the Mac Invite at Maconaquah on Saturday, January 9th.

I wanted to extend a thank you to all of the fans in attendance at the Delphi Boys Basketball game for your understanding and cooperation.  It obviously wasn’t something we were expecting and your adherence to the PA directions was much appreciated.

This will be the last update prior to the new year. Clinton Prairie Athletics would like to wish each of our Gopher families a wonderful holiday season! We look forward to continuing our athletic programs and hope to see you again soon at an event in 2021. Stay safe and GO GOPHERS!
