Prairie Grove has two more games to complete its regular season, but already clinched the 4A-1 Conference championship. Whether the team will share that championship depends on what Farmington and Prairie Grove do this next week.

“The best feeling is we’re automatically in regionals,” said Kevin Froud, Prairie Grove girls basketball coach.
