Regina Luther Lions

Luther’s own girls team is tied for fourth place in their league. The Lions’s philosophy is that teamwork, communication and fearlessness can create a successful team. First, there should to be a team-based approach; teams cannot be successful if there is too much focus on individual playing. Communication between players and coaches is also key. Lastly, the ability for the girls to be open to learning new skills and trying new things, regardless of the outcome, will produce the most effective team. The Luther girls placed sixth out of twelve teams at the Mike Dea Tournament. Luther’s philosophy of leadership is continually encouraging and pushing each other to be successful. Four especially vigilant leaders on the Luther team are Logan Lindskog, Tatianna Peterson-Ives, Madeleine Tell and Rachel Vanderhooft. Logan keeps the team grounded, is mature and is respectful during games. Tat does a great job of keeping the intensity up in every game. Maddie uses her knowledge and maturity to help the grade nine players grow. Rachel displays 100% effort in every game. Many of the Luther girls play basketball outside of the school as well. Ella Gidluck plays club basketball for the Regina Junior Cougars. Tatianna Peterson-Ives also plays club basketball. She competed in a club basketball tournament in Las Vegas where the team placed third. Madeline Tell won All Star at LIT last year and has also won the Angela Tillier Hustle Award.
