With 4 games remaining in the regular season, the Colo-Nesco boys' basketball team has a shot at school history. The most wins by a boys team during the regular season is 18 (1989, 1990). With a record of 16-2, the boys need to win three of their final four games to eclipse that mark.
After a 44-39 victory over North Polk Friday night, the Royals have just one home game remaining. The win wrapped up the Heart of Iowa Conference Small Division title for Colo-Nesco, who now prepares for one of the toughest match ups of the season as they go on the road to face Jefferson-Scranton (11-3). J-S is led by 6'7" senior center Nolan Muench who averages 12.8 points per game. The Rams beat Roland-Story twice this season by a combined total of 13 points, and their three losses are to Carroll (#1 team in 3A), Carroll-Kuemper and Bondurant-Farrar.
The Royals final three games of the season are at home against Gilbert, and on the road against Meskwaki and Nevada. At 16-2, the Royals are just on the verge of the class 1A top ten. Their 16 wins is tied for second in the state of Iowa (all schools). So, pollsters, how come no love for the Royals?
