Plum has hired Justin Walther as its new boys basketball coach, the school announced Tuesday.

Walther coached at Winchester Thurston the last two seasons, compiling a 20-14 record and making the WPIAL playoffs twice. Before that, he coached four seasons at Serra Catholic, going 58-36, including a 21-5 season in 2018-19 that featured a trip to the WPIAL finals.
