The Mississippi Valley Christian School varsity boys’ basketball team won the eight-team Faith Baptist Bible College tournament in Ankeny, Iowa.
ALTON — Mississippi Valley Christian School’s varsity boys’ basketball team participated in an eight-team tournament at Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny, Iowa, Thursday, Jan. 29, through Saturday, Jan. 31.
The team won the championship game with an undefeated tournament record, beating teams from Kansas, Minnesota and Colorado. Senior Ben Allen was named MVP of the tournament, and sophomore Caleb Gleason was named to the All-Tournament Team.
“We are thankful for a good trip and safety on the road,” stated a press release from the school. “They left Ankeny shortly after it started snowing there (the college ended up getting over 1 foot of snow that night and into the next morning) and, although it took a little longer for travel, most of the trip was done in just rain. God is good!”
The team is gearing up for its own invitational tournament this weekend.
