Falcon boys finish second in WVC standings

The O-A/BC-IG boys’ basketball team closed out the regular conference season with a pair of wins last week. The victories assured the Falcons of the number two seed in the conference tournament, which gets underway Friday, Jan. 26.

The conference tournament will be the next scheduled ball games for the Falcons who finished regular conference play with a 7-2 league record. O-A/BC-IG is 11-6 overall. In the conference tournament, the Falcons will open against Ridge View in a junior varsity/varsity contest in Ida Grove this Friday at 6 p.m.

Coach Steve Brown noted the second place showing in the conference standings was the fulfillment of a team goal. “We had a goal of placing in the top half of the conference and we attained that. We also have twice as many wins (all games) than we did last year. Looking ahead to future goals, the kids set a goal to make it to the conference tournament final and to win it.”
