Falls posted a 4-10 record in the Eastern Wisconsin Conference to notch a sixth place finish (6- 17 overall) in the final EWC standings.

The Falcons capped their season with a loss to Kiel in a first round WIAA Division 3 regional playoff game.

After losing nine seniors last season, Falls scuffled to find its offense at times, while searching to find new leaders.

With just four seniors and one returning starter on their roster, the Falcons fought in every game to gain some wins to build confidence.

“We had a very talented young group with veteran seniors,” said Falcons’ head coach Jake Frohling. “Our seniors worked hard and knew their roles well. Our inconsistent play hurt us and we couldn’t match up in size with other teams.”

Frohling felt that the team played better basketball toward the end of the season, losing some close games and winning in overtime against Kewaskum to end the regular season.

The Falcons will lose four seniors to graduation this year, including Joe Van Engen, Caleb Nysse, Tyler Hass and Jacob Brading.

“These seniors worked hard and were dedicated to the team,” Frohling commented. “They accepted their roles on the team and gave 100 percent.”

Frohling is excited to have nine returnees for next season.

“We should add a little more size and we had several players begin to show their talent this season,” stated Frohling.

Junior starters Ryan Schmitt and Austin Madden, along with sophomore Ross Krist, are expected to contribute more next year.

Freshman Jared Petrie and junior Alex Antonie should add size to the team. Juniors Tyler Beeck and Haris Advic, along with sophomores Trey Hake and Clark Otte, will be adjusting to new roles.

Petrie and Krist were named All-EWC honorable mention in their first varsity season.

Petrie averaged 11.0 points per game (76-of-121, 63 percent), scoring 241 points to lead the team in scoring in his first season on varsity. Petrie also led the Falcons in rebounding with 75 rebounds.

Krist averaged 10.8 points per game and scored 221 points this season..

Krist shot 45 percent from the field (77-of-159) and led the team in assists with 30 assists (2.3 assists per game).

Schmitt and Madden averaged 9.2 points per game and Madden was third in the EWC with 40 3-pointers (40-of-94).

The Falcons were sixth overall in scoring, shooting 47 percent from the field, and last in rebounding. Falls also finished second in the EWC in 3-point shooting.
