The end of school has come. Basketball season has come again. This year Immanuel Lutheran Christian Academy has put a great amount of work in for the basketball program for next season. Coach Taylor Mueller has registered the boys Crusader varsity basketball team to do some great things over the summer. Starting on May 28 through the 29, the Crusaders varsity basketball team will travel together to Oologah, OK. to compete in a two day tournament with six games to play. Last season the crusaders won the 1A regionals tournament but the fact that last season is over does not stop their grind.

Some of the athletes are attending other camps this summer to help them improve for next season.

“I will be going to Concordia Nebraska with (sophomore guard) Ramsey to attend a basketball camp that they are having to help players improve,” junior forward Spencer Jennings said.

The Crusader plan on taking home state next season. They will have at least four seniors next season who are a major factor to the rising program.

Coach Mueller has also registered the varsity players in the Oral Robert University basketball league this summer from June 20-22. The Crusader attended this tournament last summer.

“As a whole team we did not do great. We all could have played together and actually won a game but it did help us grow a little closer as a team,” Al-rawi said.

“We plane on getting lots of dubs this summer and next season,” Jennings said.

Coach Mueller cannot stress enough the importance of this summer for the Crusaders varsity basketball team.

“The summer team camps will give us a really good opportunity to work on playing together in the off season so we can be better prepared to play together when the winter season rolls around and play against better teams,” Mueller said.

The Crusaders anticipate picking up where they left off last season. They have an exciting future ahead of them and hope the Crusader faithful follow them as they plan on taking the state championship home this upcoming season.
