A big test is coming up in the next two weekends as Norwalk hosts Toledo Rogers(Jan.19) who lost to Columbus Northland by only 2, WOW! and Toledo Whitmer(Jan.26) who gave Norwalk their only loss in the Regionals last season. Both teams look very tough this season. An excellent addition to their schedule this year. As an independant fan I will be there and encourage everyone else in the area to get out and support the team. GO TRUCKERS!
