At 14-3, the L-Cats are having yet another solid year.
Friday's game against Luther Prep marks the start of Lake Mills' second round through the tough Capitol North in boys basketball.
Lake Mills went 4-1 in their first pass through, defeating rival Lodi on Tuesday to wrap up the first round of play in the conference. The one conference loss was to conference-leading Columbus, who they will face on February 18.
Coach Steve Hicklin points to a difficult non-conference schedule, which includes powerhouse teams like Division 2's #5 squad Stoughton, as great prep for the tough run through the league. In Lake Mills' sectional, even the regional rounds can be intense, as the L-Cats saw when they fell in a regional semifinal despite winning 18 games a season ago.
