PHS will be holding a send-off for the state-bound Cardinal team at 2:30 p.m. in the high school's gymnasium on Wednesday, and all community members are welcome to attend. The 2:30 pep fest will conclude at 3 p.m., and a departure parade through town will follow. The parade will begin at the high school then pass both the intermediate and middle schools before making its way through downtown.

The Cardinals (22-3) will face the Tomahawk Hatchets (15-7) in the first round of the 2018 WIAA State Softball Tournament at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 8 at 10 a.m. on Goodman Diamond. This year marks the Hatchets' first trip to the state tournament since 1983.
