(WALNUT) The Walnut girls basketball team gets the season started tonight. The Warriors will take on Rolling Hills Conference foe Adair-Casey to start the season. Heading into every new season it seems that all teams are filled with hope and optimism, but for Walnut they are more excited for the girls basketball season than they have been in a long, long time.
Coach Jeff Koenck says it will be the best girls basketball team Walnut has fielded in about 8-9 years.
The Warriors went just 5-17 last season but they had three freshmen that started every game as well as another freshman and two sophomores who started in at least seven games. The Warriors will still be young but they are experience and have improved in several areas according to coach Koenck.
It’ll be a good test right out of the gate as Walnut travels to defending conference champion Adair-Casey tonight
