The Pleasantville Boys Basketball Squad has been hard at work preparing for its season opener next Thursday against Chariton. Coach Tom Wilkins must replace three guards from last season that led the team in scoring and rebounding. He does have his leading scorer back in Bobby Beier, however three of the top five scorers are gone. Wilkins says a couple of new faces will join the three remaining starters. D-J Weaver, who Wilkins says got very little playing time will likely have to start, also Jake Burgett who played exclusively J-V will also play in a starting role. Pleasantville travels to Chariton Thursday night then hits the road to Leon for its Pride of Iowa Conference opening at Central Decatur.
