(Walnut) After an 0-2 start, the Walnut boys basketball team looks to get in the win column this week as they take on Iowa Christian Academy on Tuesday and East Greene on Friday.
Walnut opened up the season with a 60-33 loss against Adair-Casey and followed that up with a 43-37 loss against Orient Macksburg.
Coach Blum says his team took a big step forward from the first game to the second game especially defensively.
The Warriors had a breakout season last year with eight wins and hope to surpass that this season. They’ve set several goals this year and they don’t think Rolling Hills Conference championship is out of the question.
Coach Blum says he hasn’t talked with his team about the school boards vote to join forces with AHST for all boys sports next year but plans to talk about what this season means to the community throughout the season.
