Harvest Prep wins conference
Harvest Prep's middle school flag-football team secured its conference championship last week as they defeated Immaculate Conception 36-6 in the final game of their season.
Using a simplified version of Harvest Prep High's playbook, coach Joe Lojpersberger says it's a great building block for the kids.
"It's a great transition for our students coming from junior high to high school," Lojpersberger said. “They're able to start practicing at the varsity level and understand the playbook.”
