“I have to say that it is because of the kids we have and that they are so coachable.”
Feldhaus in his fifth season as the Lakers head coach and has taken his team to the 4th region tournament four times and has won the 16th district championship twice going into this week’s district tournament.

“I think it is more of a credit to them than it is to me, so I’m just so proud of those guys.”
