PREP GIRLS BASKETBALL PREVIEW: Wheelers have two of the top WIC players back

AUDUBON – Audubon was probably one of the big surprises in the Western Iowa Conference a year ago. And call it a pleasant surprise, as the Wheelers, under coach Darran Miller, notched a 16-8 record, 11-5 in the WIC, good for fourth place, and a post-season run that saw them run all the way to the Iowa Class 1A regional semifinal. The season-ending loss to eventual state champion Newell-Fonda capped a season where four of their losses came in the first four games, and saw them win 16 of their last 19 games prior to the regional semifinal.
