Junior Lady Raider Basketball Season

"The Fab 5"

January 12, 2018

The LN Jr. high girls 2017 basketball season consisted of 5 girls. It was an exciting season to watch the chemistry between these 5 girls grow.  Coach Kathman and Coach Porter called them “Fab 5.”

Even with low numbers, the team competed well in every game and came away with a 5-5 record and won the Blue Hill “B” tournament.


Here is how the season went. 

LN 40  Red Cloud 11

LN 16  Deshler 26

LN 16  Superior 24

LN 21  Kenesaw 33


Blue Hill Tournament =

LN 33  Superior 6

Championship Game = LN 29  Blue Hill 9 (The LN fab 5 didn’t let Blue Hill score in the second half of the game!

LN 26  Giltner 1 = After a “black out” before the game started, due to high winds knocking over a power pole and generator, the girls had one of their best performances of the season!  Great defense allowed Giltner one free throw in the second quarter.  The Fab 5 ran the ball really well in this game.


LN 33  Harvard 6


Please notice how LN outscored their opponents in the last 4 games 121 – 22!


The girls then came up against a very nice shooting Silver Lake team and lost 19 – 26

The Raider Fab 5 traveled to Franklin for their last game of the season.  The Lady Raiders found themselves down by 10 points at the half after cold shooting.  They came out determined in the second half, pressed the Franklin girls, had a chance to win, but unfortunately, lost by 1 point. 



Coach Kathman emphasized to these young ladies all season that if they only take one thing away from this season, it will be mental toughness.  She said the growth physically and mentally that this group showed over the season was amazing to watch.
