New boys basketball Coach ready to lead the Orioles

Under the direction of new head coach, Chris Buckmiller, the Lennox High School boys’ basketball team is ready to begin their 2021-22 season.

Buckmiller coached for five years at Roosevelt High school, five years with South Dakota Attack and one year at Stoughton High School in Wisconsin before coming to Lennox. He looks to help the Orioles improve on last year’s 8-14 record.

The Orioles will be without Peyton Eich, Mason Temme, Gavin Sanculi, and Zach Zirpel all of whom graduated last spring, however, they return four of the five starters from last season with Jackson Arlt, Steven Christion, Ayden Spielman, and Porter Ihnen all returning.

“Our overall speed and athleticism will be our biggest strength this year. We expect to speed teams up and play uncomfortable when they have the ball,” said Buckmiller. “Everything that the boys are learning this year is brand new. However, they have done an incredible job at being fast learners.”
