Congratulations to Wisconsin Lakers Gold on going 5-0 and winning the Purple Division at the North Tartan Meltdown July 24-26th in Minnesota. This is the second year in a row Lakers Gold has won the Purple Division at the Meltdown. Very proud of this group, they continued to get better all summer. Great group of girls, and Coach Foster did a great job leading them.
In Pool play Lakers Gold defeated NC Heat, Northern Lites, and Purple Aces which advanced them to the Final Four of the Purple Division. First game in playoffs Lakers Gold defeated the Wisconsin Lightning, and in the Final the Lakers defeated ND Pro to take home the Gold ball trophy!
Quote from Coach Jason Foster “Even though we played shorthanded the Lakers Gold overcame adversity to finish first at the North Tartan Meltdown. This was achieved through hard work and perseverance, while each player made pivotal plays to contribute to our teams success. By far the girls played their best defensive and rebounding game of the season in the championship game. I am very proud of them”
