New Prairie did not suffer a single regular season loss in 2013 but that won't happen again this year as the Cougars lost the season opener 56-42 to rival LaPorte.
But New Prairie still showed amazing school spirit Friday night. It looked like the entire town of New Carlisle was in attendance for the game. And for that reason, the Cougars are the winners of the 1st 16 Spirit Award of 2014.
New Prairie wins with nearly 38% of the vote, defeating Riley (23%), Marian (16%), Plymouth (14%), and Memorial (9%).
The Cougars have history of having tremendous school spirit. After all they were the Spirit School of the Year in 2013.
Later this week, we will present New Prairie with a plaque and check for $100 from Martin's for showing the most school spirit on Friday Night Football.
