The school announced over the weekend that Gary Walton will be the new boss on the bench this winter.

Walton is currently the school's director of community relations, but was a head coach for four seasons in Minneapolis and knows about the winning tradition at park.

“Basketball is an important part of what we're doing here at park. There are a lot of other things going on, but for sure it's a focus and there's a lot of attention that's come about because of the success of the teams over these years. So we want to continue that tradition. In fact the kids know that, they feel that. It's a good pressure for them.”
