The Prairie Falcon High School girls basketball team do it again this year!  The lady Falcon’s capture their 12th consecutive league title.  Their win last Thursday against Fort Vancouver high school (66-13) clinched the Falcon’s first 3A Greater St. Helens League title.

If you recall, last year, Prairie HS was in the 4A GSHL league but dropped to the 3A GSHL league this year.  Last year the Prairie HS girls basketball captured 3rd in State under the 4A GSHL league.  And now it looks like they’ll be headed there again, but this time playing in the 3A GSHL league.

Earlier this week, the Falcon girls played against Camas High School (the Papermakers).  But this game was different from all the other games they have played all year.  This game was dedicated to cancer survivors.  The Prairie girls wore pink socks and their opponents wore pink uniforms in honor of the survivors of breast cancer.  Even the crowd were dressed in pink.  The survivors were honored before the game as well as at halftime, when players from both teams presented them with roses.

By the end of the night, the Falcons had another victory in the 3A GSHL, beating Camas 82-45.  However, the real winners were the breast cancer survivors.  The Falcon’s and the Papermakers and all their fans celebrated with the survivors and reminded everyone that the fight continues. It was a very touching and memorable night for all.

The undefeated (9-0) Prairie girls basketball team have a few more games before State.  Even with losing some of their top senior players last  year, the Prairie Falcon girls still are a strong team and are the team to beat.

I’ll be sure to keep watching this outstanding team as they make their way to hopefully a State Championship this year!

Go Falcons!!!

Last night Erin participated on the annual Prairie High School Homeless Awareness Night, which is part of the Key Club’s annual event.

Statistically, in a 2008 one-day count, there were 1,062 people who were homeless in Clark County alone.  For one night each year, the Prairie Key Clubbers choose to sleep outside of Prairie High School in boxes and sleeping bags in order to become more aware of how homeless teens live each day.

Luckily last nights low was 56 degrees F with no precipitation (we had off and on showers yesterday day).  And this morning, it was about 46-50 degrees F and foggy.

I haven’t seen Erin today yet, so I do not know how she fared.  They have a 1/2 day of school today, so I have a feeling that the first thing that she is going to do when she gets home is eat something, take a hot shower and land into bed for an afternoon siesta.  I have a suspicious feeling that they didn’t get a real good night’s sleep last night!!!  😉

Anyway, as soon as I hear more details, I will let you know how she did.
