Krueger also served as varsity golf coach beginning in 1957. In that sport, the Wildcats won the Twin Valley championship twice, the regional title once, and went to the state finals three times. Krueger served as the official basketball scorer for 26 years, and as a football scoreboard official for 14 years. He retired at the end of the 1979-1980school year. A special Walt Krueger Day was held on February 28, 1988 at a Wildcat basketball game, in honor of this well-known teacher and coach.
