The squeak of the shoes, the stomps of the cheerleaders, the cheering of the fans. It’s basketball season in Luther, and the Lady Lions did not disappoint in their first game at home against the Meeker Bulldogs.
The team led by Head Coach Johnny Vick stayed ahead the whole game and came out with a huge 70-46 win against the Bulldogs.
