The Post Falls student body showed plenty of spirit before the annual battle for the Prairie Pig, and it paid off Thursday night when the Trojans captured both basketball games and the prized porker.

In the boys game, Post Falls got a three-point basket from Connor Hill to beat the Hawks 52-51 in front of about 3,000 fans at The Arena.

Meanwhile, the Post Falls girls also prevailed, 53-43.

But the spirit was overflowing before the game. Students from both schools helped raise money for charity. Lakeland worked to raise funds for St. Vincent de Paul, while Post Falls gathered food for the Post Falls Food Bank.
