TAYLORVILLE — The Taylorville Kiwanis Club heard from the Taylorville head boys’ and girls’ basketball coaches, during their weekly meeting Tuesday at the Taylorville Moose Lodge.
Ryan Brown is the Taylorville boys’ basketball coach, and he told Kiwanis members that after a COVID-shortened season last year, the Tornadoes will be undersized but a very tight knit group. He added this team could be the best defensive team he’s coached in several years.
Hayden Eldred is in his 2nd year as the Tornadoes girls’ basketball coach, and told Kiwanis members that this year’s team is young, with several freshmen that will be starters. He also gave a shoutout to the girls’ soccer team, which he also coaches, saying they did well in the COVID-shortened season.
The public is reminded to tune into WMKR Genuine Country94.3 this Thursday from 9am to noon, and 1pm to 4pm, for the 2nd annual WMKR Taylorville Kiwanis Pie Auction to Benefit Children and Youth. Pies from local bakeries will be auctioned in the morning, and Kiwanis members will bring pies they’ve baked, into the WMKR studios in the afternoon. All will be auctioned with all proceeds going to local Kiwanis projects for children and youth.
