Congratulations to 2015 Wisconsin Lakers member Emma Meriggioli on accepting a Full Ride Scholarship to play basketball at NCAA D2 California Baptist University. Emma will be the 4th Wisconsin Laker member at CBU next year joining Cassidy Mihalko, Emily Schmidt, and Olivia Weber.
Emma’s leadership at the Point Guard position was a key factor in the team success going 51-8, and helped Lakers White win 7/12 events entered including Blue Star Nationals in Augusta in July.
Emma’s handling and distribution of the ball is beyond what you can hope for from any Point Guard. Her passing skills and discussion making skills our excellent. She had two great seasons with the Lakers.
Em is the 5th member of the Wisconsin Lakers 2015 class to accept a Full Ride Scholarship to a NCAA D1/D2 school.
Congratulations to 2015 5’10 SG Taylor Higginbotham on her Verbal commit to NCAA D1 Western Illinois University. The 5’10 SG from Germantown High School has been a member of the Wisconsin Lakers the past two season playing both for Lakers White. Taylor will join fellow Laker Alumni Michelle Farrow, Faith Lois, and Ashley Luke who are currently on the Leathernecks roster.
From the moment Tay first stepped on the court with the Lakers you could tell she was special. Her dedication and drive to improve was impressive to watch. On the court she never took a play off on either end of the floor. Everyone notices her shot, but what gets over looked is her tenacious defense and rebounding skills. She is the ultimate teammate who always puts the team first.
All of us at the Wisconsin Lakers are so proud to have had the opportunity to coach such a Great kid. Congratulations Tay your Laker Family is very proud of you.
Taylor makes the 4th player in the Lakers 2015 class to accept a Full Ride Scholarship to an NCAA D1/D2 School. We will have some more 2015 commitments shortly so please check back.

Sarah Schumacher 6’1 F from Whitewater High School has committed to NCAA D2 Quincy University Hawks Women’s Basketball program on a Full Ride. This past High School season she averaged 11.1ppg for the Whippets and helped lead them to a 21-4 overall record.
Sarah is a very hard worker, and was a regular at Laker workouts. This drive and dedication is a huge reason why she achieved her goal of playing at the next level. She had a nice summer season for the Wisconsin Lakers Black, her physicality and ability to finish very well inside against top level competition are a testament to all the work she has done. We are very proud of Sarah on her achievement and looking forward to watching her Senior year at Whitewater.
This is the Wisconsin Lakers 3rd 2015 to accept a Full Ride offer.
