Pequot Lakes High School


Pequot Lakes High School

Pequot Lakes High School is a 9-12 high school located a few blocks west of Minnesota State Highway 371 towards the southern end of the city of Pequot Lakes, Minnesota. The high school was originally built at its present location in 1976, and the music wing in the front of the building was completed in 2004. PLHS is the only high school in the Pequot Lakes School District (ISD 186) which includes Pequot Lakes, as well as the surrounding communities of Breezy Point, Crosslake, Jenkins, Ideal Township, and parts of northern Nisswa (the majority of Nisswa is in the Brainerd School District). The athletics teams are the Patriots. The current principal is John McDonald.

In the past ten years, the Patriot athletics programs have achieved more success than in all the school's prior years combined. Some of these noteworthy accomplishments include:

*Boys' Basketball- winning the Section 7AA title to clinch the school's first ever State Tournament berth after an 11-12 regular season in 2004, then going 28-0 in 2006 before losing in the State quarterfinals. In 2007 the Patriots again won the Section 7AA title and finished 3rd in Class AA with victories over Gibbon-Fairfax-Winthrop and Luverne and a loss to eventual State Runner-up, Maple River.
*Girls' Basketball - qualifying for the State Tournament in 1998, 1999, and 2005 where they took second place.
*Girls' Golf - winning two Class A State Championships, the first in 2002 and the second in 2004.
*Knowledge Bowl - qualifying for the Minnesota State Knowledge Bowl Meet in 1998, 2000, 2003, and 2004, winning the school's first ever Region 5 Championship in 2003, and finishing 5th at State in 2004.
*Dance team - qualifying for the MSHSL State Tournament seven years in a row in 2000 - 2007, placing 2nd in the Jazz/Funk category in 2001 and 3rd in Jazz/Funk in 2002.
*Boys' Track and Field - didn't they go to State for True Team three years in a row?
*Girls' Track and Field - State a couple times, maybe?
