"Overall, the boys played very well, giving a fine effort against a well-balance field of competition," said Storm Lake head coach Ron Netten. "We came up a little short today, but still capped off an excellent season finishing 7-2 in duals for second place in the Lake Conference and finishing second a week ago in the Lake Conference Tournament. These guys have come along way since the beginning of the season and just shy of qualifying for post-season opportunities."
