In boys basketball:
The Beckman Blazers picked up their 7th road win in Anamosa last night and improved their record to 8-3 with a 73-71 win over the Blue Raiders. After a fast start and an 8-0 early lead, the Blazers had to comeback then hold off Anamosa. Twentieth-year head coach Dan Correy talks about his teams’ effort and the positives he was most proud of:
Junior Colin Squires led the way with 18 points. Junior Colton Willenbring and Senior Josh Gehling added 16 a piece and Senior Billy Huffman chipped in with 8. Anamosa was led by Juniors Kolin Schulte and Tyler Zumbach with 20 and 15 points respectively.
