The Prairie Fire Bioneers Conference combines nationally recognized plenary speakers — social and scientific innovators who have practical and visionary solutions for the world’s most pressing environmental and social challenges (rebroadcast at Knox on a large theatre screen) — with presentations by local experts on sustainability, traditional agriculture, modern agriculture, community activism, and more. All events held in The Ford Center for the Fine Arts.

On Friday, Nov. 7, the Knox Prairie Fire men’s soccer team will host the Midwest Conference (MWC) men’s soccer tournament for the first time in our history. Our team just finished a historic regular season, going 14-3 overall and 9-1 in the Midwest Conference and securing our first regular season conference championship since 1988. Congratulations to Head Coach Matt Edwards, Assistant Coach Clint Moore ’09, and the entire Knox Men’s Soccer Team for this great accomplishment.
The MWC Tournament will be this Friday and Saturday, November 7 and 8. The Prairie Fire will play #4 seed Illinois College at 11 a.m. on Friday, with the second semi-final game, featuring #2 seed Lake Forest vs. #3 seed Carroll, starting at 1:30 pm. The winner of those two games will play on Saturday at noon. The MWC Tournament Champion will earn a bid for the NCAA Tournament, which will begin sometime the next week.
Being at home is a big advantage for our team, especially if we have a large crowd cheering them on! Come support this team that has worked so hard to bring us a championship season. If you do come, be loud, be positive, and be ready to watch history happen!
