Top Contenders

Irene-Wakonda. They lost only six games last year, made a run and now bring one of the state’s best players back in Gabe King as well as Tate Gale who scored 13 a night as a freshman last year.  Don’t forget that Trey King also is returning after a double digit season as an eighth grader.  A lot is expected from this team and they have the talent to fulfill expectations.

Langford. Without Fries and Steiner repeating a 25-2 record seems like a very tough task.  That said. This team does return four of their next five guys including three starters.  Senior leaders are now Josh Punt and Jordan Carson while junior Chance Olson and sophomore Mason Larson will step into big roles. Larson has a chance to be a standout immediately.

Warner. Not only is Warner coming off a strong 17-5 year but they have one of the state’s elite prospects and players in Michael Rogers, fellow senior Ethan Westby is solid, and there are good guards and forwards in the junior class as well.  Big expecations this winter.

Gregory. A 19 win state returns senior point guard Sean Kafka, junior worker Robert Vomacka, and leading scorer
