(WDAY TV) -- It's one of the better turnaround stories in area basketball this season. Park Christian used to be kings of the hardwood, going 6 straight years with at least 20 wins, but the boys team won a total of just 14 games over the past two seasons.

Now in Gary Walton's 3rd year as head coach, the Falcons are taking off again. With 3 juniors and a freshman in the starting lineup, the Falcons

are 12-and-4 this season.

Jay Hanson, Park Christian Sr. Forward, says, " It's really cool to see because the past few years it hasn't been very good. So, it's just nice to see that we've pulled it together, have a great coach, and great team."

Gary Walton, Falcon's head coach, says, "We feel really good about where the program is. We have some pretty good athletes and we have the ability to get it up the floor. So, we get some easy baskets. We're just figuring out how to play and handle tough situations."
