Luke Ladner holding the NJCAA national championship trophy and flanked by his father, Jay Ladner, and grandfather, J. Larry Ladner.
When people evoke the name Ladner in sporting circles in Hancock County, the sport of basketball immediately comes to mind. As well it should because it seems like the Ladner clan practically invented the game of basketball in this area of the country.

In fact three generations of the Ladner family were on hand last week in Hutchinson, KS, to witness the Jones County Junior College Bobcats perform the magical and claim the stateís first-ever NJCAA Division I national championship.
