|Cross Country team hosts meet
Prairie hosted their first ever Cross Country meet Saturday, Oct. 10 at the football/track complex with Nezperce and CV-Kamiah joining them in the event.
The meet started at 9:30 a.m. with the junior high race. The boys and girls wound up running together due to the low number of participants. We don’t yet have the official results but we know that Rebecca Seubert won the girls portion of the race. Prairie’s top boys finisher was Kaden Duclos.
The high school girls started at 10 a.m. and it started to sprinkle. By the time the high school boys race started a little after 10:30 it was pouring down rain with wind behind it.
Kyleigh Duclos was Prairie’s top finisher for the girls in third place with Tyler Wemhoff the boys top finisher.
