IDA GROVE - The inaugural season of the Ridge View boys' basketball program came to an end on Wednesday night when the Raptors lost a first-round Class 2A Distict game to the host Odebolt-Arthur/Battle Creek-Ida Grove team, 55-44.
Seth Johnson led Ridge View's scoring with 16 points, followed by Isaiah Miller, who scored eight, and Christian Bondinello, who tallied seven. OA-BCIG's Alex Warnke had a big night, scoring 26 points for the Falcons.
Ridge View coach Shannon Tesch said "OA-BCIG did a good job of keeping the ball out of Isaiah's hands. Some other guys stepped up offensively, but it wasn't enough. I was happy with our composure. This was an intense game, but we handled the pressure well."
The Ridge View Raptors finish the season at 3-17.
