Basketball and baseball will be the main topics of conversation Nov. 8, when the Belleville Area Senior Men's Sports Group holds its monthly meeting.
Scheduled speakers are Jay Harrington, the athletic director and men's basketball coach at Southwestern Illinois College, and Norm Toenjes, an assistant SWIC basketball coach who also is the manager of the Millstadt VFW men's baseball team. In August, Millstadt clinched its third consecutive Monroe Division championship in the Mon-Clair League.
Harrington enters his 35th season at SWIC with a 695-406 record. Toenjes, who is in his seventh season at SWIC, recently was named co-Manager of the Year in the Mon-Clair League with Jon Kars of the St. Louis Spikes.
