RICHMOND — Outsized and outmatched, the Iola Mustangs put up a fight in their 61-41 loss to Metro Academy. 

Even head coach Luke Byrcoft, who is one to critique, had nothing but positives to say about his team’s performance in the championship game of the Central Heights tournament. 

“They are a very experienced team, and have older players,” Bycroft said of their opponent. “I thought our boys played hard. We were at a size disadvantage at every position. And it wasn’t where we could have the athletic advantage because they were both long and quick.”
