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.
Current Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted head baseball coach Cullen Schultz held the state record for RBIs in a single high school baseball game for a long time.
As a senior at Lester Prairie in 2000, Schultz had 11 RBIs in a game, a state record which lasted until this past week.
Lakeville North’s Angelo Altavilla broke Schultz’s record when he went 4-for-4 with three home runs, and 12 RBIs.
The Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted Lakers volleyball team is having a pancake breakfast fundraiser Sunday, May 18 from 9 a.m. to noon at the HLWW High School.
The breakfast is being catered by the Waverly Cafe, and will include pancakes, sausage, milk, coffee, or juice.
