After more than a decade of playing their holiday basketball at Collinsville, Eisenhower athletics director Tim Gould and head coach Rodney Walker decided it was time for a change.
Eisenhower is now entered in the nearby Taylorville holiday tournament.
About the site change, Walker offered, “Good change up for the Panthers. Closer travel better for the parents, fans and budget.
“Bonus is that we will not see any CS8 (Central State 8) teams. I like what we have coming back so far.
“If the boys can stay eligible and healthy, I believe we can have a successful season. We have one of the strongest Junior classes I have seen in a while. Some of the names may seem new , but they are not new to me!
I will have more on this in a future print edition of the Decatur Tribune.
