PRESCOTT AND HASTINGS NEWS AND NOTES
On Wednesday, KDWA learned of some news regarding Hastings and Prescott athletics.
In Prescott, Katrina Budworth was named by WSN to the Senior Point Guard Award Watch List. Budworth is one of the top players in the Middle Border Conference, and leads a Cardinal team that is expected to be one of the top teams in the State this season under first year coach Owen Hamilton. The list will eventually be trimmed down later in the season before a winner is named.
Prescott’s boys basketball team has its first ranking of the season. The Cardinals are ranked #8 in Division 3 in the first ranking. The Boys’ first game at Durand-Arkansaw was postponed due to the winter storm and will be made up on December 5. The Cardinals are led by Jordan Malmlov and Dallas Wallin and return many pieces from last season’s team.
