Both the Mid-Prairie boys? and girls? basketball teams started their season on Tuesday, hosting the Tipton Tigers in Wellman.
The Golden Hawk girls led Tipton most of the way through the game, but the victory didn?t come easy.
A last-minute Tipton drive brought the game within a couple of points, but Tiger turnovers put the ball back in Mid-Prairie?s hands and led to a 6-point victory for the Hawks.
The Hawks are 1-0 on the season.
The girls play again Friday when they host Northeast Goose Lake in Wellman.
