Preacher Basketball…in the media again!

Once again, Concordia Seminary Preacher basketball has made news.

A couple years ago, it was ESPN.com.

Over the weekend, they made for a great little story in the Sunday St. Louis Post-Dispatch. In addition to a nice write-up on this year’s team, it included nostalgic memories of Peterson Fieldhouse and the St. Louis Hawks.

I, for one, am just old enough to remember when the St. Louis Lutheran high school “Sem games” were actually Sem games (Lutheran South class of 1992). Here’s to hoping that new bleachers will bring back at least one good tradition.
