    Last Tuesday, the Red Oak School District accepted the resignation of head boys’ basketball coach Theo Fundermann.
    Fundermann had been the head coach for Red Oak for three seasons, including a 6-15 season that concluded with a loss to Underwood in the district round in February.
    “Coach Fundermann resigned because his wife got a different job in the Kansas City area,” athletic director Barry Bower said. “His spouse has sacrificed for his job, and it was time for him to sacrifice for her.”

  • Red Oak track teams go to Ames for Iowa State indoor track meet

    Both the Red Oak boys’ and girls’ track and field teams sent athletes to the Iowa State indoor track meet in Ames during the past week.

    The meet does not count towards any regular season standings or the total number of meets teams can go to during the regular season, but boys’ head coach Sueann French and girls’ head coach Curt Adams said the meet does a good job preparing their athletes for the regular season. Some of the races had close to 20 heats.

    “It sums up the entire running career that I’ve had. The success that I’ve had, it can’t come overnight,” LeRette said. “It’s a lifestyle and everyday you’ve got to wake up with the mind-set of getting the studies done and when it’s time, you’ve got to put in your time and the miles.”
