The Garden Homes Lutheran boys’ basketball team, The Vikings, have had a season for the record books. They are currently undefeated with a record of 26-0. They are the champions of 5 tournaments including the Wisconsin State Tournament of Champions. Due to their success at the State Tournament, they were invited to the Lutheran Basketball Association of American (LBAA) National Tournament, which they then won on Sunday, March 5, 2023.
The team has gotten a lot of attention this year but not simply because they are talented basketball players. Tournament organizers, along with opposing coaches, and fans have repeatedly commented on the team’s sportsmanship, character, and humility on the court. GHLS has received numerous letters, emails, and phone calls praising the team for the way they conduct themselves. They truly are a special group of young men using their talents in a God-pleasing way.
