After more than 1,200 people participated, casting more than 18,000 votes over 63 matchups, we have crowned a winner of The Columbian’s Picture Pick ‘Em bracket-style best prep photos tournament.
And the winner is Victory Lift.
In an image shot by Columbian photographer Nathan Howard, Victory Lift captures Prairie football player Christian Lowry lifting teammate Zack Brown high into the air after the Falcons’ 73-35 win over Capital in the Class 3A playoffs last November.
Victory Lift beat out “The Littlest Knight” by a vote of 264-216 (55-45%).
We thank everyone who participated, and we hope the contest offered a bit of distraction for you in these challenging times.
