UPDATE: Mustangs Boys Headed To State Basketball Tournament

Orange City, Iowa — The George-Little Rock Mustangs boys basketball team are State Tournament bound after a 47-23 win over the South O’Brien Wolverines, in a Class 1A substate matchup that was played at Orange City Monday night.

George-Little Rock Co-Head Coach, Brian Leuenberger tells KIWA that he figured, going in, that it was going to be a battle.

On offense, Leuenberger says his team just had some guys take over.

Coming up Monday morning, the Mustangs will face Gilbertville Don Bosco in a quarterfinal game at Wells Fargo Arena to begin their State Tournament run. Leuenberger says he doesn’t know a lot about the Don Bosco team his Mustangs will be facing.

This will be George-Little Rock’s first appearance at the State Tournament in 10 years, and Leuenberger says he’s excited for the kids, and the community.

The George-Little Rock vs Don Bosco quarterfinal game is scheduled as the second game of the State Tournament, and is scheduled to tip off at 11:15 Monday morning, March 5th.
