The Daily Freeman Journal

WEBSTER CITY - The week to week move up and down the rankings continued for the Webster City boys' basketball team yesterday.

Ranked No. 6 (Class 3A) in the Associated Press poll a week ago, the Lynx (18-2) moved back down to No. 7 in the second-to-last rankings for their class despite going 3-0 last week.

Iowa Falls-Alden (18-2) jumped in front of WCHS and into the No. 6 slot. Ironically enough, the Cadets only two losses came at the hands of the Lynx.
