A basketball game in honor of Q

December 13th, 2022 was the home opener for the boy’s basketball team at Lindbergh High School. Playing against Marquette, it was the memorial game for Quintyn Lewis.

Lewis was a senior at Lindbergh High School and, sadly, passed away earlier this school year. He was described by those that knew him as always being kind, funny and an amazing basketball and volleyball player. Quintyn was loved by the entire community. Even those who didn’t know him very well said they were touched by his personality and humor, every day.

The theme at the basketball game was PJ pants and Crocs, as that was his favorite thing to wear to school. The head coach of the varsity basketball team, Nathan Biggs, had some thoughts on how the game went. 

“The energy in the gym was better than any basketball game that I have been a part of here at Lindbergh. Students, staff and the community as a whole really showed love and support for Q and our program that continues grieving. I know that Q would have loved the energy and crowd in the gym. For that reason, I think it was a great way to honor his memory. Emotions were high going into the game following the moment of silence in Q’s memory. This certainly had an impact on the start of the game. Our guys settled in emotionally, but we trailed by nine at the half. The guys relentlessly fought back in the second half to force overtime. Things just didn’t go in our favor on a last-second shot by Marquette. I believe that our never-give-up attitude in the second half was partially driven by the fact that it was a memorial game, as well as the energy in the gym,” Biggs said. 

Players on the team also felt the energy during the game.

Varsity basketball player Daniel Feiste (12) says, “The atmosphere was something I’ve never experienced before. The whole game everybody was so involved it was fun to be a part of.” Although Lindbergh did not win the game it was still close and reflected Q in a wonderful way. 

“I was at the game and it was amazing watching the players come together and be there for each other. I know this wasn’t an easy game for anyone, but we were there for each other as a Lindbergh community,” said Maddie Heine (12).
