to hold public scrimmage
The PHS Girls Basketball team will be holding a scrimmage on November 10, 2007 at the Prairie High School gym starting at 5 pm and would like to invite everyone to attend. There will also be a haystack feed during the games and a pie auction between games. Cost will be $5 per person or $15 per family, which includes a drink.
The first two games will be the girls scrimmaging each other. The last game will feature the girls versus some of the PHS coaches: Steve Wilson, Dustin Behler, Travis Mader, and Teel Bruner. Proceeds will go to the girls’ basketball team.
Come and help us start off the season and support your lady pirates!
Powderpuff game and Homecoming activity photos
The week started off with the brave students dressing according to an 80’s theme.
On Monday night, the boys of PHS displayed their fabulous volleyball skills at the Powderpuff Volleyball event at the high school gym. The Junior boys dominated and won the tournament. Thank-you to all who helped with Powderpuff Volleyball, especially the officials and line judges.
Tuesday was PJ day and Wednesday was Redneck day.
Wednesday night, the Junior and Sophomore girls narrowly beat out the Senior and Freshmen girls at Powderpuff Football. After the game, the fire department lit the bonfire. The amount of material collected for the bonfire was very impressive and it burned for days, still smoldering on Friday at the football game. The Student Council and the Student Body would like to extend a special thank-you to Tim Gehring for dousing our bonfire and to the Cottonwood Volunteer Fire Dept. for monitoring our bonfire for the entire night. If they hadn’t been willing to help, the bonfire would not have been possible. Thank-you also, to those who helped to announce and ref the Powderpuff Football game.
Thursday was career day and Friday, as usual, was spirit day. The Spirit Leaders organized class competitions for an afternoon assembly to pump up school spirit, and both the students and the teachers seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves.
The Homecoming parade took place Friday night before the football game. The Seniors’ float won first place, Juniors won second, Freshmen earned third and Sophomores were awarded fourth. Not only was Friday homecoming, it was also senior night for the boys. During half-time of the game, Jalisa Wright and Nick Johnson were crowned Homecoming Queen and King for the 2007-2008 school year. After the boys’ tremendous win, the cheerleaders sponsored the homecoming dance in the high school cafeteria. PHS would like to thank all those individuals who helped to make our homecoming week activities possible.
