2020 OUTLOOK:
We are excited about this new Prairie Hawk team. With the addition of a talented junior class to go along with a group of seniors who were big parts of 2019. We were young on the mound in 2019 but that experience will be a huge factor for us going into 2020. The conference will be tough every night, so it should be fun to get out there and play.” Head Coach James Nelson
