Basketball (boys)

The goal of the LHS boys basketball program is to have team members grow as students, young adults, basketball players and competitors as an extension of the school mission and classroom experience.   As the Lord has given us a spirit of competition, coaches want players to use their gifts to compete as well as they can.  For many years, the boys basketball team has consistently been very competitive with a demanding schedule against strong teams.  Coaches strive to teach student athletes proper basketball fundamentals and how to understand their roles and play together to achieve the team’s goals.  Players are expected to be (or become) hard workers, great listeners, great teammates, great sportsmen, and great witnesses to God’s saving grace.
