The Prairie Heights wrestling team gave a good account of itself Saturday at the Yorktown Super 10 meet, which featured several of the top squads in Indiana.

P.J. Dean poured in 24 points in powering Eastside past Lakeland, 61-41 in NECC boys basketball last Friday night in Butler.

Lakeland took advantage of a 10-0 run in the third quarter to best Eastside, 36-30 in an NECC girls basketball tussle Saturday night in LaGrange.


Jarrod Curtis, Cole Long and Brock Bergman all went 5-0 in leading the Lakeland wrestling team at the Sturgis Super Dual meet Saturday.

Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Well, maybe not desperate. But bold at the very least.
