LINDSAY — The Lindsay and Muenster rivalry just got a little more interesting.
After winning the District 13-1A championship last year at Lindsay, head coach Lynn Cook will be wearing red starting in August as he was recently approved to be the head boys basketball coach at Muenster High.
“We’re excited,” Cook said. “It’s a great opportunity for me and my family.”
Cook helped Lindsay capture a district title despite not having a single senior on the team. The Knights swept the Hornets this season in a pair of nail-biting games, the latter of which determined the district title.
Making the move along with Cook will be his son, Lyndon Cook. The younger Cook was named The Register’s All-Cooke County Player of the Year as a sophomore after averaging 18.8 points, 16.7 rebounds and 4.3 blocks per game.
Lyndon Cook will team up with All-Cooke County Defensive Player of the Year Cole Walterscheid at Muenster. The two of them both are over 6-foot-6 and could potentially make up one of the top front courts in Class 1A.
“We’re going to be pretty big inside,” coach Cook said. A deciding factor in Cook’s move is that he will be a basketball only coach now, he said. He was an assistant football coach at Lindsay.
