Thank you for visiting the Lakeland Girls Basketball webpage. This is going to be a fun season for the Lady T-Birds. We return a very experienced group of basketball players this season. We have two returning seniors, Sydney Ziebart and Lilith Schuman. These two young ladies lead the conference in steals last year and were among the top scorers in the conference. They were both named to the All-Conference Team in 2016.  Melissa Bruckner is a returning Sophomore and is currently leading the team in points and rebounds per game. She was also near the top of the conference in rebounds and points per game last year as a Freshman. All of the Lady TBirlds on this team like to play a fast paced aggressive style. The girls really like to run the ball and score off every steal or turnover. This makes our games very exciting to watch. As a team last year, we lead the conference in points per game, and steals per game. We also set various conference records with most posts scored in a game. We were also second in rebounding, which is incredible because these girls all stand around 5'5" tall.  I am proud to be there coach and am very excited about working with this group of fine young ladies.

My staff also includes Matt Michalsen and Dan Claussen. Dan Claussen filled the vacancy left by Ginna Dalton this season. Coach Claussen hails from Homestead, where he worked as a gym teacher, JV Boys Basketball Coach, and Cross Country Coach. The Lakeland Girls Coaching Staff and players would like to invite you to come watch a game this season and become involved in our program. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 715-612-6126. I would be happy to discuss girls basketball. Thank you for checking out our website, and I look forward to coaching this great group of girls.
