Forsmann combine for no-hitter
Dan Riener and Mat Forsmann combined to pitch a no-hitter as the Prairie baseball team beat Timberline 12-3 at Lewiston Thursday, April 6.
The game was moved to Lewiston due to wet field conditions at Cottonwood.
Riener started the game and pitched into the third inning. Four walks, three errors and a hit batsman in that inning led to 3 Timberline runs. Forsmann came on to get the final out of the inning and pitched the final 4 innings to complete the no-hitter. He wound up striking out 10 in his 4 1/3 innings.
Meanwhile Prairie scored 2 runs in the first but fell behind in the third. They came back in the bottom of the inning with 4 runs to take the lead for good. They added 2 more in the fifth on a 2-run homer by Riener and scored 4 more in the sixth.
Riener finished the game with 3 hits and 4 RBI. Phil Henry had a pair of singles. Forsmann, Sean Daly, Ronnie Chandler, Eric Lerandeau, Chris Schumacher and Ben Schumacher each added a single. Chandler wound up with 3 RBI.
With the win Prairie improves to 3-2 on the season and 2-0 in league play.

Students attend state conference
Ten students from the Prairie High School HOSA chapter attended the State Leadership Conference for HOSA this past week (April 5 – 7) in Boise. Students and advisor attending the State conference were: Shayla Dalgliesh, Ryan Daly, Kara Guyer, Nathan Kaschmitter, Katie Nuxoll, CJ Rieman, JD Riener, Tabitha Seubert, Daniel Sigler and Teddy Stefan. Prairie HOSA Advisor is Sheri Daly, RN.
The students competed in events ranging from HOSA Bowl (a team event where the members answer questions regarding HOSA history, parliamentary procedure, medical history, diseases and terminology) and skills events such as Nursing Assisting skills, Physical Therapy Aide skills and EMT skills, to writing (medical terminology) and speaking events (prepared speaking, job seeking skills and medical spelling) and medical math events. Students were also in an event to portray their creative side with an extemporaneous health poster based on a topic presented at the conference which was promoting health in Middle School age students.
The students held various fundraisers throughout the school year to help pay for the costs to attend the State Leadership Conference. They hosted numerous cake raffles during games, sold Santa gram cookies at Christmas time to staff and students and gathered prizes to hold a raffle. Thank you to everyone that supported our fundraisers to help us to attend this event – we really appreciate it!
