Season Outlook

Parkway North has a nucleus of players coming back that helped fuel a late season push and playoff run that fell one game short of the Missouri Class 5 Final Four. The Vikings have some key spots to fill, but they will lean heavily on their seniors, especially three year starters Cameron Prayer, Cameron Paul and Jacob Abell. Parkway North has eight teams on their schedule that won a district title in 2017, and three teams that played in the Final Four. They will also square off against the two teams that played for the Class 5 state title. Parkway North will tested once district playoffs roll around and look to make another push at the Class 5 title.
