The West Central Area boys basketball season came to an abrupt end after a 47-44 upset by No. 5 New London-Spicer in the Section 3AA-North quarterfinal game Saturday, in Barrett. The Knights end the season 18-8 after a win over Hancock in the regular season finale.

The Knights graduate six off their roster this spring, including Cole Anderson, Jacob Strunk, Roman Mihailovschi, Damon Sanstead, Isaac Kreft and Brett Amundson.

“It was a great season for our guys, being nearly the smallest AA school in the state. We finished 18-8 overall and finished conference runner-up in the tough West Central Conference,” WCA coach Kraig Hunter said. “Some of our seniors have been playing varsity since ninth grade and finished the last four years 82-21. They have a lot to be proud of.”
