Seventh Grade girls finish season
The Prairie Middle School 7th grader girls ended their basketball season last week by finishing 2nd in an invitational tournament held at Clearwater Valley High School in Kooskia. The 7th graders beat Timberline in the first round but lost a hard fought battle to host Clearwater Valley in the championship game.

Prairie then recorded wins over Orofino and Culdesac before losing a one point game to Kamiah on the Kubs home floor.
