The boys opened their season Saturday night against Corwith-Wesley at LuVerne and the girls will host West Bend in their season opener Tuesday night, Nov. 16. There are three senior letter winners, Linda Daly, guard, and Jane Hanselman and Dawn Lindebak, forwards, on the girls squad of 20. Miss Hanselman was also all-conference a year ago.
