FOREST CITY | Although the Forest City High School Boys Basketball team lost a talented group of seniors to graduation, they have lots of hope for the 2018-19 season.
"Just like any other season, we have high goals and expectations for the team," said senior Micah Lambert.
The Indians, who opened their season with a 40-point victory over Eagle Grove, would like to win the conference title and go to the state tournament, he said
But the real goal is "to work hard and be the best we can be," he said.
Senior Avery Busta said he wants to get out there and have some fun, and try to win as many games as we can."
"We should be proud to put on that jersey and represent our school," he said.
One of the Indians' biggest strengths is their quickness, according to Busta.
He said the Indians will try to run a lot this season and try to create points on fast breaks.
Lambert said giving the younger players some experience "is going to be huge for us."
That process shouldn't take too long because "everyone looks good right now and is going to fit right in," he said.
Busta said he wants this year's Indians to be remembered as a team that worked hard and was "part of a great tradition."
