The Lightning boys basketball team held their post season banquet Monday night, March 30th, and there were many accolades to go around. Each player bought into a "team first" mentality, and as a team they tripled their win total from last year. The team had big wins against eventual state champion Apple Valley, 3A runner-up St. Paul Johnson, and swept defending state champion Lakeville North. It was a great season!
Congratulations to unanimous All-Conference players:
Keegan Dickson, Drew Guebert, and Sean Ryan.
Congratulations also to the All-Conference Honorable Mention players:
Alex Bangh, Jameson Bryan, and Martin Mitchell.
In addition, a nice honor to Coach Goetz as he was selected the 3AAAA Coach of the Year!
