The varsity boys’ basketball ranked ninth in class 7A with a cumulative GPA of 3.284.

Seasonal rankings build toward an overall annual championship.  According to the FHSAA website, “The school in each class with the highest cumulative point total for the school year will get a plaque. Points awards for teams in single-class sports will still count toward the overall standings.”

LRHS currently ranks sixth in the state in class 7A with 34 points.  The Mustangs finished fourth in 2020-21.
