La Lumiere at Civic Game Cancelled

(La Porte, IN) - For a while, it looked like La Lumiere School and the City of La Porte would come together to host a home game for the school's high-flying basketball team.


The Lakers, annually ranked among the country's best College Prep School teams, were scheduled to play on November 11 at the Civic Auditorium. However, the school has withdrawn from the game against Donda Academy.


No reason was given for the cancellation.


Mayor Tom Dermody said individuals who purchased advanced tickets for the game would receive a refund.


"While we are disappointed that the game won't be taking place, we respect La Lumiere's decision to cancel. We look forward to supporting the Lakers at the NIBC La Porte Invitational in January," Dermody said.


La Lumiere is again scheduled to compete in the National Interscholastic Basketball Conference invitational in early January at the Civic Auditorium. All of the teams in the invitational are among the best in the nation.


ESPN will again cover the tourney as they did last year.
