The seventh best sports story for area schools from the 2019-2020 academic year takes us to a record breaking night for a WACO boys basketball senior.
Nik Coble has been a thorn in the side of opponents for the last four seasons and on January 30th he etched himself into the Warrior record books. In a 64-34 win over Holy Trinity, the 6’7’’ senior became the all-time rebounding leader in school history with 849 after a 14 board night. Coble surpassed Ryan Shelman’s mark of 847 career rebounds from the mid-2000s. Coble went on to finish with 932 in his decorative career and was named Player of the Year for the Southeast Iowa Super Conference South Division. He tallied 14.6 points and 13.3 rebounds a night this past winter while leading the Warriors to an undefeated regular season and a 22-1 overall record.
Check back into tomorrow for number six on our countdown when we take a look at a new single game record at Keota.
