There are 27 girls turned out for Prairie High School volleyball this season.

Juniors are Leah Holthaus, Cheryl Gehring, Kelsey Tidwell and Beka Bruner.
Freshman making the squad are Krystin Uhlenkott and Hailey Danly.
Schumacher and Danly both missed the Jamboree at Grangeville due to injury and illness but Prairie still did very well, managing to outscore all three opponents, Nezperce, Grangeville and Clearwater Valley.
Workman and Schlader are the only returning starters from last yearís state qualifying team. Gimmeson got a lot of action as a back row player and moves to Libero this year.
The White Pine League has been reconfigured this year with Deary and Kendrick dropping down to the Division II level and Kamiah dropping down from 2-A. Defending state champion Troy, defending league champion Genesee and Kamiah will all be tough to beat. Lapwai, Potlatch and C.V. will be the other league members this year.
