One of a plethora of new girls basketball coaches in the area is Albany’s Aaron Boyum.
Going into the weekend, the Huskies had yet to lose a game. So for Boyum, it has been all good.
The going should get more difficult. The new year brings the heart of the Granite Ridge Conference schedule, which includes the Foley Falcons.
Foley plays at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Albany.
The Falcons are led by 6-foot-5 junior center Tara Dusharm. They’ve played a difficult schedule, getting into the Breakdown Tip-Off Classic and then playing over the holidays in South Dakota.
Albany is led by senior guard Amazih Eickhoff. The Huskies are deep and playing well.
It’s one game to watch what is an abbreviated week for prep sports.
* St. Cloud Tech at Willmar wrestling, 7:30 p.m.
Willmar (1-0 Central Lakes, 5-0 overall) just might be the best team in the conference. Tech (2-1, 6-1) is close, with its only loss to Alexandria (4-0, 4-0).
* Tech at Roseau boys hockey, 7:30 p.m.
The Tigers have a neat road trip, playing at Roseau this night, then playing Friday night at Warroad, another wonderful arena and a program with a great tradition.
* Tech at Sartell boys basketball, 7:30 p.m.
Both these clubs are looking like CLC contenders. The conference is definitely up for grabs.
