Trinity off to state tourney

Thursday, February 10, 2011

The Trinity Lutheran Lady White Knights Junior High basketball team has been invited to compete in the Lutheran Sports Association of Missouri State Basketball Tournament (LSAM) held Feb. 25-27 in Jefferson City Helias High School, to crown two LSAM champions.

Only 12 boys and girls teams are chosen each year to compete for a junior high basketball champion.

Teams are selected from the 63 Lutheran junior highs scattered throughout the state based on record, standings and region of the state.

"Just to make the tournament is quite an honor," said Trinity Head Coach Matt Ticknor.

This is Trinity's second consecutive trip and seventh invitation in the last 11 years to the tournament.

The Lady White Knights finished fourth in 2002 and 2006.

The 2006 team included current Mt. Vernon player Monica Senninger.

More information can be obtained from the LSAM website at www.LSAM.org

Note: Trinity Lutheran's eighth grade recognition night has been rescheduled for Monday, Feb. 14 at Freistatt vs Springfield Rush. The girls game at 6 p.m. and boys at 7:30 p.m.
