At a glance: The Tigers prepare for their second year at the 2A level in a field of former NCIC rivals. Ottawa and Sterling head the field, but the Tigers beat the rest of the entries at the P.I.T. and have a leg up for the third and final qualifying berth. “Knowing that we’ve recently won the P.I.T., shot our season-best 159, and won the NCIC conference championship, we do have some momentum and reason for optimism heading into Tuesday,” PHS coach Duane Price said. PHS senior Cole Evenson was a 2A qualifier last year.
