LHS and HLWW BBB teams in the state record book

It may be over a year later, but the Minnesota State High School League has officially recognized a state record set by the Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted Lakers and the Mayer Lutheran Crusaders boys basketball teams.

Back on Nov. 30, 2012, the Lakers faced off with the Crusaders in Mayer in an early season showdown.

The Lakers beat LHS 84-72 in a game which featured a combined 95 free throws attempts – that number is now an official state record for most free throws attempted in a game.

The other record set in that game was 61 free throws attempted by one team, which was set by HLWW.

In the game, the Lakers were 40-for-61 from the line, with then senior Cody Painschab going 20-for-25 from the line.

Meanwhile, LHS was 17-for-34 from the line.
