Rachel and Shianne were able to score 26 of our 38 points and Makayla did an outstanding job of rebounding for us.” Prairie Home was led by Rhorer with 14 points and Distler with 12. Scott added, “Our sole senior Krista Small has been the best leader I’ve ever coached. Without her, we would not have had the success we have had this year. Our time will come to win this type of game. I am super proud of our team. We finished with 17 wins, a third place and two second place finishes in tournaments this season. We now have a fan club following us at both home and away games. Our community has really made us proud to be Lady Panthers. I have had a super fun year coaching these young ladies.” Prairie Home ends the season 17-8.
