CHAMPAIGN – Prairie Ridge fulfilled its mission and achieved perfection on Saturday.
The Wolves had one goal since last season, winning the Class 6A state championship. They did that with a 48-17 victory over Sacred Heart-Griffin at Illinois’ Memorial Stadium.
Prairie Ridge (14-0) won its second 6A title in six seasons and finished its first perfect season in the school’s 20-year history.
Quarterback Samson Evans overcame a rough start with fumbles in the Wolves’ first two drives and ran for a 6A title game record yards. Prairie Ridge’s triple-option attack was too much for the Cyclones, running for a 6A title game record in rushing yards.
Wolves coach Chris Schremp moved to 120-50 in his 15 seasons.
