Week of August 28, 2017:

A special thank you goes out to Prairie Pride for decorating our high school and junior high lockers this week! 

 
Last weekend, both of our high school teams opened up their seasons with games. Football scrimmaged Arickaree-Woodlin here at Prairie and everyone is very excited for game #1 this week against Deer Trail. Volleyball played in the Brush season opener tournament, going 0-3 against Briggsdale, Kit Carson, and Wiggins. They will host their first home game next Tuesday vs. Union Colony!! 
 
Congratulations to our JV Football team for opening their season yesterday with a win against Peetz 33-32! It was a close one, but they pulled it out and it was great to see so many of you here! Image result for sports gifs

PLEASE READ!!!    August 24, 2017
 
I want to thank everyone for being understanding during the time it has taken to get all of our schedules corrected. During the past two weeks, we have had multiple teams drop out of 6-man football. This creates an extreme snowball effect upon everyone's schedules in our area. I have met with our League ADs and we have devised schedule adjustments around all of the changes we have been faced with.
 
As of yesterday, Pawnee does not have a football team for the 2017 season. Therefore, please be advised of the schedule adjustments listed below. In addition, ALL SPORTS do have some changes. All of the adjustments are listed below. I have also attached all of the new versions of our schedules.
 
Again, THANK YOU so much for your understanding and flexibility during this time. While I realize not every situation is ideal, it is what could be worked out for this Fall Season as a result of so many changes not within our control. I am looking forward to cheering for our kids this Fall, and I am excited to see everyone supporting all of our teams throughout all seasons! It is going to be a great year!
 
Notable changes:
 
High School Football
-Sat. 8/26- scrimmage vs. Arickaree-Woodlin only
 
-Mon. 9/11 JVFB @ Briggsdale
 
-Fri. 9/15 HSFB vs. Arickaree-Woodlin--HOMECOMING GAME!!!
 
-Sat. 9/30 HSFB vs. Primero (@ Hanover) 
 
 
High School Volleyball
-Thurs. 9/7 HSVB @ Lone Star is Varsity only
 
-Thurs. 9/21 HSVB vs. Fleming is Varsity only

Weekly Update: August 21, 2017
 
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! 
 
It has been great seeing all of the mustangs over the past week, getting back into the swing of school and working hard at practices! Each week, I will send everyone a "weekly update" email. These emails will include game dates, leave times and locations, and any modifications to schedules. Occasionally, emails may come from me mid-week in the event of any last minute changes to schedules. Please keep in mind all schedules are tentative, and remember to be flexible :-)
 
I am very happy to announce the addition of a JV Football schedule! Please be sure to make note of these added game dates to your calendars! 
 
This Fall season, we have already made quite a few adjustments. All of the dates have been altered on the schedules, and new copies are posted below. The only exception here is Junior High Sports. I am meeting with the league tomorrow to make some adjustments, so those schedules will be sent separately. 
 
For future reference, be advised of the tentative planned Homecoming date of September 15, week #3 vs. Pawnee. If this changes, I will send an email.
In addition, our annual Pink Out! Night will be on Friday, October 6. 
 
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

 

This Week's Schedule:
 
*Saturday, Aug. 26*
-High School Volleyball @ Brush Tournament (Varsity only) 9:00 am
 
(Athletes will depart from Prairie at 7:15 am.)

-High School Football Scrimmage vs. Arickaree-Woodlin 10:00 am (@ Prairie)

 
 
 
 
I hope everyone enjoyed the eclipse today! I look forward to seeing you all at our games throughout the Fall season!

Go Mustangs!
