MacKenzie Stephens put an exclamation point on his high school days at Prosser in 2013 by finishing fourth in the SkillsUSA Nationals Internetworking competition. While he was excited by that finish, it was trumped by his first time competing as a college student this summer when he won the gold medal and gave Prosser it’s first-ever national champion.
The Greater Clark County School Board voted Wednesday evening, July 9, to approve Jason Connell to return to the Charlestown Pirate Basketball sideline effective immediately. Connell replaces Sean Smith, who led the Pirates for eight seasons before taking the head coaching job at West Washington in May.
