On March 3, Pratt Community College inducted 24 new members into the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society (PTK) and 11 into Kappa Beta Delta (KBD), the business honor society in a joint ceremony.
The Pratt Community College men’s basketball team started out on fire last night in the Beaver Dome and built an early lead against the Hutchinson Blue Dragons, but soon after the Blue Dragons flipped the effort switch on the rebounding front, and by halftime Pratt found themselves down 10.
The Blue Dragons had more offensive rebounds than the Beavers had rebounds total in the first half. That coupled with some turnover problems led to a 103-90 victory for Hutch. The men are now 12-8 on the year, and 3-3 in conference.
The Pratt Community College women's basketball traveled to El Dorado on Saturday afternoon to take on the Butler Community College Grizzlies.
It was imperative to the rest of the game that the Beavers get a good start. They did just that and jumped on the Grizzlies early. They built a 10 point lead with about eight minutes remaining in the first half and took a three point half-time lead into the locker room.
The Pratt Community College men’s basketball has been giving the fans who make it out to the Beaver Dome their money’s worth, but it’s not saving any hair follicles for the head coach.
The team welcomed the Broncbusters from Garden City Community College to town last night, and after about two minutes of Beaver turnovers the score read 11-0 GCCC. Pratt spent the entire first half clawing out of that hole and went into the intermission down 38-40.
The Pratt Community College men’s basketball team traveled to Concordia, Kan. last night to take on the #13 Cloud County Thunderbirds in their first Jayhawk West action of the year. An inspired first half on the defensive end allowed the Beavers to jump out to a 47-37 lead at the intermission.
Grasiela Navarro (pictured) continues to make school history as she finished second at the region championship meet on Saturday, the highest region finish ever by a Pratt cross country runner. Her 18:50 was second only to national champion Kenyan Lydia Mato of Barton.
The number nine ranked women's team was edged by four points and denied a podium spot as they finished in a disappointing fourth place of the sixteen region teams. Breanna Phillips and Divina Flores ran great races for the Lady Beavers.
On Oct. 21, filmmaker Patrick Clement visited Pratt Community College to take part in a brown bag lunch and discussion of his film "Somewhere Between Freedom and Protection, Kansas." The lunch was attended by middle school, high school, college students, and PCC faculty and staff.
