VICTORY and Senior Night for the Lions

Bison Blinds

They say all good things must come to an end. For four Luther Lions basketball athletes and their families, the end of an era came Tuesday night as Syrus Grisby, Luke Mohr, Caitlin Bailey and Lauren Coates played their last home basketball game in the “old” gym. There might have been a few tears shed.

Lions fans spilled over to both sides of the gym for the evening that featured Senior Night to celebrate 18 seniors and their parents. Students were honored for their participation in Basketball, FFA, FCCLA, Track, Choir and Powerlifting. Both teams gave the home crowd VICTORIES against Harding Charter Preparatory High School from Oklahoma City.
