CHURUBUSCO — Churubusco’s girls basketball team started the 2013-14 year with a new head coach who vowed to change the fortunes of the program.
Dustin Beucler took over a program that had not had a winning season for 10 years. While the Lady Eagles did not attain a winning mark in 2013-14 (9-13), there were several marks of progress.
