Congratulations to our 2025 White team for going 7-0 to win the National Summer Classic 7th Grade Division.

This group finished the season an amazing 43-2 on the year playing up in over half of their events. Only loses were by 1 and by 3.
Congratulations to Natalie McNeal and Maddie Walsh on both committing to play NCAA Division 1 basketball.
Natalie McNeal a 5’8 All State Point Guard from Germantown has committed to play for St. Louis University from the Atlantic 10 Conference. Natalie has played Lakers since the 8th grade where we have watched her get better and grow as a player every year. Natalie is a special talent that can impact the game in all area with her athleticism, jumping ability, jump shot and strength. Natalie will join fellow Lakers 2017 graduate Myriama Smith Traore who also is attending St. Louis and Nat and M will get two years together.
Maddie Walsh 6’2 Wing from Arrowhead has committed to play for the University of Alabama Birmingham in the Conference USA. Maddie has played Lakers since the 9th grade. Maddie is one of the faster players to ever put on a Wisconsin Lakers uniform. After suffering an early season injury Maddie helped guide Arrowhead to one game away from another state appearance. She has a rare combination of length and speed you don’t see very often.
Nicole Hernandez 6’1 F from Oak Creek has committed to play for Lindenwood University in St. Charles, MO an NCAA Division two school in the GLVC. Nicole has played for the Lakers the last two years and her development in that time has been unreal. Her dedication to getting better and working on her game has been very noticeable, every time she stepped on the court she was getting better and better. Nicole is a tremendous shot blocker and rebounds the ball well.
Our Lakers 4th grade team does it again goes 7-0 to win the National Summer Classic! Finished the season 23-1 against age level and 25-2 overall. This weekend had wins over the Angels, Milwaukee Mayhem (Twice this weekend), Rockford Wildcats, Wisconsin Impact (twice this weekend and for the 5th time this summer), and Wisconsin Sirens. What a tremendous season for this group.

Congratulations to 2017 5’9 G Grace Weber from Kettle Moraine on committing to NCAA Division 2 to the University of Illinois Springfield. Grace has played for the Lakers for 5 years and joins her sisters Lindsey Weber (NCAA D2 Minnesota Crookston), and Olivia Weber (NCAA D2 California Baptist) to commit to play college basketball all who played for the Lakers program.
Grace is a very hard worker who put in a lot of work to achieve her goal. She was a regular at Laker training workouts as well individual training with Laker coaches. Her strength and athletic ability get overlooked at times as most take notice to her shooting ability. Her fierce competitiveness is something we are very much going to miss. She will be a great addition to a Springfield program that plays in the Great Lakes Valley Conference. It is going to be weird not having a Weber girl in our program after having 3 play for us for so long. We are happy that all 3 achieved their dream of playing at the next level.
Grace is the 8th player in our 2017 class to commit to an NCAA D1/D2 program this year.
Congratulations to Abby Guidinger 5’10 2017 SG from Kettle Moraine on committing to NCAA D2 Minnesota Crookston from the Northern Sun Conference. Abby is our 3rd player to commit to a school in the Northern Sun this year! She has played for the Wisconsin Lakers the past 4 seasons.
Abby is a crafty lefty that can get to the rack or knock down a 3 from dead. She had a big summer having big game after big game. Multiple games she hit over four 3’s a game. Not only can she hit the 3 consistently, but she can hit it from a couple feet behind the line as well. This skill stretches the defense and frees up her teammates to score easier. Crookston is getting another good Laker that will be a great addition to their program joining; Alison Hughes, Amber Shoenicke, Kelsey Stinson, and Lindsey Weber who are currently on the Golden Eagles roster.
