The Clear Lake boy’s basketball team has been very competitive this year. Their pre-district record is 13-5 and they have a record of 4-2 in the district.

The boys lost the first two out of three district basketball games against the highest ranked teams in district, the Dickinson Gators (87-83) and Clear Brook Wolverines (55-51). However, both of the games were very tight and could have gone either way.

“The team is full of young players who are hungry and are playing with a chip on their shoulder to prove that they are no joke in this district,” head coach Tommy Penders said. “The team is playing well. The guys need to play every game like its their last.”

The boy’s basketball team’s biggest loss was by 5 points in a non-district game. They have kept the games close until the final seconds.

“The team needs to focus on the little things such as making rebounds and making the smart fouls,” Coach Penders said. “The team needs to stay intense and concentrate to win the close games.”

The district has three teams in the top 100 in the state including the Clear Lake Falcons who are ranked 60, while their rivals Clear Brook are ranked 38 and Dickinson placed at 42.

“This is a tough district to play in,” coach Penders said.

Clear Lake is everybody’s biggest game so there are no breaks when playing in this district,”

— Coach Tommy Penders

The team is set on making big things happen this year. “Our main goal is to make it to playoffs as of now,” Penders said.

Clear Lake Falcons are dedicated to pursuing greatness and the boy’s basketball team is no different.
