For the second straight year, the Truckers went unbeaten in the regular season after a 70-44 win over Tiffin Columbian.

It was the first time Norwalk went back-to-back in unbeaten regular seasons.

The Truckers went 22-0 overall, 10-0 in the Northern Ohio League.

“I told the kids that what they’ve accomplished over the last two years is something they will never forget,” coach Steve Gray said. “There were no hiccups for two years. I am just so proud of them.”

Norwalk took control early and never let their foot off of the metal, leading 14-8 at the first break and 33-21 at the half.

Any hopes that the Tornadoes had about getting back into the contest were dashed in the third period.

Jeff Thomas led the way with 14 points.

Senior Damius Peacock added 13 points.

The locals shot the ball well, connecting on 33-of-60 action shots and on 6-of- 7 from the foul line.
