girls to participate in Idaho County Shootout
The 1st Idaho County Shootout, Sponsored by the Idaho County Sheriffs Office, will be held this Friday, December 4th at the Prairie High School Gym.
It will feature the Prairie and Grangeville basketball teams.
The purpose of this event is to promote “sportsmanship” and build community spirit between the two schools. All the money that is made from this event will be donated to the local food banks in each of the respected communities. The winner of the Idaho County Shootout will be given a trophy for the school who demonstrates the best sportsmanship during the week leading up to the game, and the game itself on Friday. This will be a yearly event with a traveling trophy going to the school that shows the best sportsmanship on and off the court.
There will be a variety of events that the schools will be participating in during the week.
