Pirate Football Finishes 12-1

After an amazing year, which featured an undefeated regular season and another DAC title, in addition to sectional and regional titles, the Pirates fell just a little short of their ultimate goal,
falling to Westfield in semi-state.

PNN would like to congratulate the Pirate football team and everyone associated with the program on another incredible season!
