Friday was Prairie Home's Homecoming, where the Panthers defeated the Jamestown Eagles 47-41 in their last game of the regular season.

Prairie Home led 11-9 after one quarter, however, Jamestown had pulled ahead 27-18 at the half. After an even 31-31 third quarter, the Panthers outscored the Eagles 16-10 in the final frame to secure the win.

The Lady Panthers lost their final game of the regular season to Jamestown 55-41.

Jamestown led 18-8 after one quarter, 29-21 at the half, and 45-27 after three quarters.

The Lady Eagles were led by Alli Muri with 21 points, followed by Mickayla Strother with 15. Mackenzie Strother chipped in with seven.

"I think this was the best team-ball we've played all season," Jamestown Coach E.H. Hirschvogel said. "Prairie Home's senior girls have been tough for us the last four years and I was really impressed with how they played tonight."

During the Homecoming coronation, Kim Hettinger was crowned queen; Kristen Peterson, princess; Tyler Young, king; and Kyler Fairfax, prince. The Prairie Home Cheerleaders performed during halftime of the varsity boys' game, while seniors and their parents were recognized during halftime of the varsity girls' game.

A dance followed the coronation. The theme for this year's Homecoming was "Time Warp."
