Track & Field
The Kubs, Pirates and Savages flags were among the nine flown last Friday night, April 21. The Prairie girls took second place, with a total a few ticks better than Nezperce and a few short of McCall, and the 1A Kamiah boys placed third to the 2A squads in attendance, Orofino and McCall.
Clearwater Valley went into a double-header on the April 19 afternoon with thoughts of climbing the Whitepine League standings, but a two-run fifth and a two-run seventh dealt the Rams a 5-2 loss in the opening half.
Prairie’s softball squad overcame an unusual bit of scheduling and jumped to 5-0 atop the Whitepine League standings with a 15-5 win over Genesee last Wednesday, April 19. All the precipitation this spring precipitated a shift: Genesee was due for a home game, but agreed to relocate it to the neutral site on account of what the Lewiston Tribune described as “soggy field conditions.”

Last Saturday, April 22, the Grangeville track and field teams got a first look at the facility where state qualification will be held next month, and the GHS girls outscored competitors from nine teams, including 2A rival St. Maries.
With Coeur d’Alene Charter and Clark Fork on the court last Saturday, April 22, Grangeville “won the ones we expected,” coach Kerry McCulley said. “We also lost some matches that surprised me.”
