In just his second year as a varsity coach, Pruner led his top-seeded squad to a 25-2 season, with 21 consecutive victories. This marked Mt. Calvary's first district championship, and the Chargers also claimed back-to-back Commonwealth Christian Athletic Conference crowns for the first time in school history.

Kory Pruner is the son of Keith and Karen Pruner, of Olivesburg.
