MS Boys National Tournament

The MS 8th grade boys basketball team participated in the National Lutheran Basketball Tournament held in Valparaiso, Indiana, March 29-31. The Boys Tournament consisted of 32 qualifying teams representing 15 states from as far away as Florida, Nevada, California, Maryland, Kansas, and Texas. The boys played 6 games in 3 days and returned home with a 5-1 record and the Consolation Championship (9th place overall).  The 5 victories is the most ever by a Nebraska team in the National tournament.  More importantly, all players, coaches and fans experienced great fellowship and many lasting memories to be cherished for a lifetime.

In their opening game, the Warriors battled Immanuel Lutheran of Palatine, Illinois. The Warriors overcame opening game jitters and pulled away for a 56-31 victory. In Game 2, the Warriors faced California state champ and eventual National Tournament runner-up Salem Lutheran of Orange, California. The Warriors had the lead heading into the fourth quarter, but a strong finish by Salem resulted in 32-41 loss for the Warriors. In game 3, the Warriors downed Holy Cross Lutheran (Saginaw, Michigan) 47-27.  In game 4, the Warriors battled the Texas state champ from Salem (Tomball, TX) and came away with a 64-32 victory. In game 5, the Warriors used their defense to come away with a 41-15 victory over 2017 national champion St. Michael (Fort Myers, FL). That victory earned the Warriors a spot in the Consolation Bracket Championship against Faith Lutheran (Las Vegas, NV). In their final game, the Warriors steadily pulled away for a 38-21 victory.

For the tournament, Jonny Puelz scored 54 points and Garret Hoefs led the Warriors with 62 points while defensively guarding the opposing team’s top player. For his efforts, Garret was named to the 10-person all-tournament team. All results are posted on the tournament website http://LBAA.org, and even more (photos, etc.) on their Facebook page.

The Warriors finished their season with a 16-2 record, bringing home championships at both Roundball and Concordia C-Club tournaments along with their Consolation Championship (9th place) finish at the 32-team Lutheran National Tournament. Team members were Gabe Schmidt, Logan DeBoer, Jonny Puelz, Will Jurgens, Garret Hoefs, Ethan Ringler, Cooper May, Jameson Pella, Bo Claridge, Jackson Masek. Congratulations on a tremendous season!!
