Wisconsin Lakers 7th White goes 7-0 to win the National Summer Classic coming off a 7-0 Jimmy V Classic Championship. What a great job by the players and coaches on a strong finish to the season. Dealing with injuries this team managed to get better and better as the season went on! Wins over Become One (from Canada twice including the finals), Closed Gym League (Twice), IAI Stunners, Lady Hoop Dreams, and Wisconsin Elite. Great season ladies looking forward to the Fall event and then next summer already!Read More
Wisconsin Lakers 11th White win the Platinum Division of the USJN National Championships July 22-25th going 8-0 to take home the trophy. This is one of many National events the Wisconsin Lakers have won over the last few years. This team was named up of 1- 2020, 5- 2019’s, and 4- 2018’s but wont didn’t play due to injury. Very impressive run.Read More
Congratulations to Myriama Smith Traore 6’2 F from Whitewater on her commitment to NCAA D1 Marquette University from the Big East Conference. M was one of the prized forward recruits in the 2017 class in the country and committed to MU over ACC and Big Ten programs. M played for the Lakers for 4 years.
Myriama is simply a dominating force on the defense on end of the floor able to guard 3-5 positions as good as anyone you will find. She is also the most dominate rebounder I have ever seen. She can take a game over without scoring a point which makes her a very special player. What is really scary is she has the ability to post up, drive to the rack, or knock down the 3 with the best of them, but she much prefers to distribute the ball and get teammates open. Tremendous get for Marquette and look forward to watching M try to lead her team to another state championship this season.Read More
Congratulations to Calli Delsman 5’10 2017 G from Waukesha West on committing to NCAA D2 Minot State University in the Northern Sun Conference. Calli has played for the Lakers for the past 3 seasons, and will be joining Kari Clements who is currently a Sophomore at Minot.
Calli has one of the better off hand drives you will see, and a spin move that is deadly. Her ability to be able to guard multiple positions, as well as her ability to score inside/outside makes her a tough match-up for anyone. She is one of those players that isn’t flashy but has a knack for making big plays/shots that alter the outcomes of games. Her long arms and rebounding ability will be missed.
Congratulations to 2017 5’9 G Grace Gilmore from Arrowhead on committing to NCAA D1 Western Illinois. Grace will be the 6th Wisconsin Laker on the Leatherneck roster next year and our 8th total player to commit to Western Illinois. Western Illinois commits in the Summit League Conference.
Grace is known for her work ethic, toughness, and electric speed she will be a great addition to Western’s program. Her fierce competitiveness was a joy to be around this summer, and looking forward to watching her have a great Senior season. Her selflie skills will be greatly missed as well. Grace was a member of the Wisconsin Lakers for two seasons.
Congratulations to 2017 PG Macy Williams from Sussex Hamilton on committing to NCAA Division 2 University of Mary from the Northern Sun Conference. Macy has played the last two summers on Lakers White and a total of 7 years in the Laker program!
Having coached Macy for 5 of her 7 season in the Lakers its very bittersweet to see her commit today. Exciting to see such a great kid achieve her dream of playing at the next level, but also sad for me that she won’t be in a Laker uniform next summer. I was blessed with the opportunity to coach her for many years, she is a great basketball talent, but an even better leader and high character young lady.Read More
