The Pringle Award
The Pringle Award , so named to honor the memory of John Pringle, was first established at Lakota high school in 1977. Mr. Pringle gave generously of his time and talents for many years in support of the Thunderbird athletic program and the Lakota Athletic Boosters Club.
The award was presented to the male and female athletes in each years graduating class who were judged to have had the most outstanding athletic careers while in high school. The Pringle Award was based soley on outstanding athletic achievement.
Lakota Athletes have been honored with this award annually since 1977. When Lakota split into two high schools the award was initially continued at both Lakota East and Lakota West. The Pringle Award was last given at West to members of the class of 2014 and has since been discontinued at West.
