After matching up twice in 2009 Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley hosts Western Christian in the season opener for both teams. Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley won both meetings enroute to a runner up finish in class 2A. Corey Brandt’s team opens this season fourth ranked in class 3A.

Brandt says their goal every year is to be the best they can be, “have a ton of fun and learn a lot of life lessions.” He says is a geat way to open the season with a big rival as they had two great games last year.

Western Christian is ninth ranked in 2A and coach Travis Kooima’s team has high expectations. He says they set a lot of goals and said they have to work to reach any of them. Kooima says they want to win the district and then see what happens from there with hopes of doing damage in the playoffs.
