Prairie Valley girl’s and boy’s teams came away with hardware at Chico while the Saint Jo boy’s team put together a solid 2-2 at Alvord less than a week after football ended.

Prairie Valley Boys
The Prairie Valley boys team won the consolation side of the bracket at Chico. The Bulldogs struggled in their first game against Itasca. The Wampus Cats press proved too much early for Prairie Valley to fight back, losing 60-24.
