Prairie High School participated in the IHSAA’s statewide #BetheLightID campaign to honor all the 2020 seniors plus the Spring sports athletes who aren’t able to compete this year due to the coronavirus. The football field lights were turned on at 8:20 p.m. Friday, (2020 in military time) and left on for 20 minutes while supporters drove past the football field and honked their horns in support.
