First Day of Practice Emotional at Washington

Local Sports

WASHINGTON, Ill. — Boys basketball practice started around the state on Monday.

It was a little more emotional than usual in Washington. Eric Schermerhorn has taken over for his mentor Kevin Brown, who lost his battle with brain cancer in June.

Schermerhorn was an assistant under Brown for 14 years and finished the 2019-20 season as interim coach when Brown took a medical leave of absence.
