The fourth grade boys basketball team has enjoyed much success already in the start of their season. They've competed in 2 tournaments playing 4 games in each. At the Heron Lake Okabena Fulda tournament they came away with 3 wins and 1 loss to a very tough Hill Beaver Creek team, for a solid second place finish. This past Saturday they traveled to Westbrook and made quick work of their first 3 opponents. They beat WWG 29 to 4, Wabasso St. Anne's 24 to 10 and Mt. Lake 19 to 12. Their 4th and final game found them tired and as a result their shots fell a bit short. They came home with 2nd place medals again after losing 16 to 18 to HLOF. These young Falcons will finish up their season February 15th at the Sleepy Eye tournament.

The Lamberton gym was busy with 9 Elementary boys basketball teams playing games this past Saturday morning, February 1st. The 5th grade hosted teams from Comfrey, MCC and HLOF. Red Rock came away with a win against Comfrey (36 to 23) and then fell to MCC (10 to 42) and HLOF (10 to 51). The 6th grade boys started their day off with a decisive win against Wabasso (24 to 9), continued their success against Cedar Mountatin (30 to 18), kept up their winning with a 19 to 16 win over MCC and then fell to Sleepy Eye St, Mary's in an overtime battle. (21 to 23). After all games were played a 3 way tie was discovered for first place. Tie breaking criteria came down to how well each team played defense during the day (points allowed differential) and Red Rock Central was the clear winner - securing first place medals. RRC Community Ed would like to extend a thank you to all of the volunteer help and time that made this day a huge success for our youth. THANK YOU to our volunteer refs, the High School boys basketball players, Curt Determan and Bruce Starkson.
