The boys head coaching spot opened up after Joel Danner, a seven year head coach of the Toreador resigned. In 2012, Boone athletic director, Larry Moklestad was searching for a new coach for the suffering Toreadors. After many long months of interviewing and searching, Moklestad announced that Justin Baute from Kentucky would be taking over the program at Boone in hopes to turn things around.
As Baute enters his second year, he looks to improve from a 4-17 record from last season. The Toreadors officially start practicing for this upcoming season the 17th of November. The Toreadors first challenge of the season will be December 2, at Newton High School, according to the Raccoon River Conference.
Boone will be bringing back many varsity letter players. Daniel Anderson, a junior this year, will be a key element if the ‘Dors want a winning season. Anderson lead the team last year with 35 assists. Bailey Turner, a senior, lead the team with field goal percentage with 47.8 as a junior. Also Tyler Newbold, Jake Kraftcisin, Jake McBirnie will be in their last season for Boone and hope to contribute also.
