Lexington expected to be competitive
With three returning starters, head coach Doug Yoder expects his Lexington Minutemen boys basketball team to be competitive in the conference this season.
Lexington begins play Monday at 5 p.m. in the GCMS Thanksgiving Tourney playing Iroquois West. We will have the broadcast on Route 24 Radio’s Facebook page with Mike Rich calling the action. They’ll play Tri-Point Wednesday at 5, GCMS Friday at 5:30 then Saturday’s game is to be determined.
“Hopefully we are playing Saturday night for the championship,” said Yoder.
Athletic Director Isaac Steidinger agrees that it would be exciting to be in the championship game.
“It would be a good, exciting start to the year.”
Yoder feels the conference is loaded this year.
“We should get a good game every Tuesday and Friday night that will help us post-season,” said Yoder.
Teams such as El Paso-Gridley and Heyworth will be tough, according to the coach, and each game will likely be competitive.
Lexington was the number one seed in the McLean County Tournament last year and is hoping for that again this season.
