The winter sports season is upon us, and that means the start of girls’ and boys’ basketball across the state of Iowa.
As a prelude, CISN will roll out our team preview capsules (better known as “Getting to Know You”) of the teams in the Central Iowa Conference (CIC) that we will be following and covering this winter.
This week, we will start with the girls’, since they start their season on Friday.
Can Dowling Catholic go back-to-back and win their 2nd 5A girls title, or will Southeast Polk get their second title in three years? Does Valley, Des Moines East, and Ames have what it takes to take the crown? Will Hoover and Roosevelt get over the hump and make their return to State?
Or is there a dark horse team that could make a splash?
We’ll find out to all of those answers as the curtain rises for the ’14-’15 season.
We’ll have our first look at several teams starting Tuesday afternoon.
