The Lakers lost a close game last night at Northland International University by the score of 81-78 on a last second shot from deep in the corner. The team came out looking tired and turnovers were a challenge. At one time they held a 6 point lead but were then down by 8 points several times. In the end Northland determined the outcome of the game.
The Lady Lakers improved their record to 3-1 by defeating the Northland International University Lady Pioneers by the score of 79 -69. Our young team is beginning to play very well together especially on offense. Everyone on the roster scored points last night. Despite having some lapses on defense, we played well on offense working the ball around and getting some very good looks to the basket. Leading the Lady Lakers was Courtney Clavers with a double double of 19 points and 10 rebounds. Abby Gerhard from Iron Mountain, Michigan came off the bench and added 17 points. Lyndsay Holschbach added 10 points.

Taylor VandenPlas also did extremely well with a 55th place. Sophia Chin ran and great race for her 1st National appearance, finishing a respectable 110th place. All three young ladies represented Silver Lake extremely well.
For 144 years the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity have dedicated themselves to the love of God and service to the People of God. On November 9, 1869, five young Catholic women in rural Wisconsin responded to the inner call to give all to their Lord, Jesus Christ and to serve the needs of this pioneer land. Today the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity continue to strive whole-heartedly to live the spirit of their foundresses. The 21st century may present challenges which appear different from those the founding Sisters had experienced. However, the Sisters’ response is the same: “to observe the Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, living in obedience, in poverty and in chastity.”

The Lady Lakers basketball team played extremely hard but could not pull out victory against a very tough Judson University team. Despite playing very hard on defense throughout the game the young Lady Lakers lost by a score of 88 to 67. Turnover is what hurt us especially early in the game. We were down by as much as 18 points in the first half. With adjustments in our defense and were able to pull within 8 points in the first half. In the second half we again turned the ball over early, and went quickly to a 14 point deficit. Despite this the Lady Lakers continued to hustle played the entire game as if we were down by only a few points.
