Congratulations to the Zion Lutheran Varsity Boys’ Basketball team for taking 4th place in the nation at the Lutheran Basketball Association of America’s Nationals! Zion was one of 32 teams across the country invited to participate in this prestigious national competition as a result of their great achievements (an undefeated regular season, conference champions, and a 3rd place finish at state). Nationals were held at Valparaiso University March 22-25th. Led by head coach, Dave Wascher, and assistant coaches, Scott Shepard and Hunter Simonini, the boys worked hard and won 3 out of 5 games, losing only to the pre-tournament #1 seed and the eventual national champions. In addition, the boys broke the Zion school record with their 4th place finish and Matthew Volkening made the All-Tournament team for Nationals. On Monday, April 9th, the team was recognized by the Marengo City Council. The boys were presented with certificates of achievement. Congratulations, again, to the Zion Panthers!
