As anticipated Josh Thompson is the new head basketball coach at Barr Reeve High School. The move was finalized Friday when the Barr Reeve Board of Education meeting in special session approved the hiring. Thompson spent the past two seasons at Vincennes Lincoln and compiled a 27-25 overall record including a 17-9 mark this past season. He also previously had coached at Wood Memorial and Springs Valley. Thompson replaces longtime Viking head coach Bryan Hughes who announced he was stepping down after 26 seasons at the school.
