PCA Eagles soar to winning season

PRINCETON — The Princeton Christian Academy Eagles Boys Basketball teams are having a winning season.

The “B: team is leading the Prairie Conference this year with an undefeated season. PCA’s “A” team currently sports a 7-3 winning season as well, as both teams prepare for the Prairie Conference Tournament coming up on Jan. 13-17 at Dalzell.

The “C” team, made up primarily of fourth-grade boys, has also seen success in their limited conference play, winning all but one game. They too will have a tournament for only fourth through sixth grade boys on Jan. 23-27 at Deer Park Grade School.

The basketball teams are coached by Buc Grey and Tony Clausen.

Prairie Conference teams include Cherry, Deer Park, Dimmick, Rhema Christian, St. Louis School, Lostant, Dalzell, and PCA. In non-conference play, PCA’s B team also beat Ohio Grade School, Peru Catholic, and Logan Junior High School.

PCA basketball includes eighth-grader Daniel Henrikson, seventh-graders Drew Grey, Sam Wolbrecht, Will Finley, and Jonathan Henrikson; sixth-grader Wessley Baker; fifth-grader Gio Romagnoli; and fourth-graders Matthew Harris, Nick Mecum, Miguel Jones, Cozy Wolbrecht, Connor McKenney, Benjamin Henrikson, and Graeham Rumley.
