The Mid-Prairie Golden Hawk boys soccer program will have some new faces on the pitch this spring.
According to Mid-Prairie head boys soccer coach Pat Cady, interest from the Sigourney school district and a confirming vote from their school board last week has approved a sharing agreement that makes soccer a possibility for boys in the Sigourney district by joining Mid-Prairie. It is still very early in the season as far as practice is concerned, but Cady says he had five players from Sigourney attend his first practice after the school board’s decision.
Mid-Prairie was previously sharing a program with only Keota. According to the latest enrollment numbers from the state, the co-op between Mid-Prairie and Keota left the program at 317 students, 11th largest out of 57 schools in Class 1A. The addition of Sigourney to that co-op, where the latest numbers available are 133 students, push the Mid-Prairie program to Class 2A status. Their 450 students rank them 31st in size out of 48 schools in the class.
The Mid-Prairie boys soccer team will open the season April 3rd at Highland.
