Still Looking For Vintage Photos

This week’s memory photo was sent to us by Kevin Splett. With it being basketball tournament time we bring you the 1967-68 boys basketball team from the four-team WIAA District Basketball Tournament program. The Lakers, coached by Marv Hanson and assisted by Harold Feidt, competed with Siren, Clayton and Clear Lake. Players pictured, front row, left to right:  Bill Friedrich, John Quade, Mike Leisz, Lloyd Popenhagen, Jim Kuntz, Wayne Shortess, manager Nate Splett. Row two: Greg Becker, Dana Lepien, Tom Shipshock, Steve Johnson, Joe Warland, Pat Wick, Coach Marv Hanson.  If you know the two managers on the left please let us know. Cheerleaders were Doreen Gross, Sandy Splatt, Rhonda Platter, Sharlene Heintz and Betty Carlson. The GTLAA is still looking for old photos.  Some have been received but more are needed, especially old Turtle Lake town and farming photos.  If anyone has old photos or negatives and wants them included in the upcoming history book, now is the time to get them in.  They can be scanned so you can have the originals back. Please contact Dave Skrupky ( or Dave Slack ( to scan your history photo.
