We recently had the opportunity to catch up with Levi Arnold, son of Randal and Mary Arnold. He is a graduate of Sturgeon Bay High School (2004) and Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois. He played two years of varsity basketball at Sevastopol High School before transferring to Sturgeon Bay his junior year. An All-Packerland Conference selection in his first year at Sturgeon Bay, Arnold went on to play four years of collegiate basketball at Trinity. In 2008, Arnold went to the Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, and graduated in the fall of 2012. He is currently a doctor of chiropractic at the Peninsula Chiropractic Center in Sturgeon Bay, where he works for his father. Arnold is engaged to Kathleen Sanders – from Menominee, Michigan – whom he met at chiropractic school. The couple has a one-year-old child, Trig, and will marry in Kewaunee on August 31, 2013.
Sharing one of his favorite high school basketball memories, Arnold recalls making an underhand three-quarters-court shot at Kewaunee his senior year.
As far as his toughest opponent in high school, Arnold says facing Luxemburg-Casco was always a big rivalry game – especially when both teams were undefeated. He has fond memories of the physical matchups in the Luxemburg-Casco gymnasium.
Arnold says he misses the competitiveness in high school sports, as well as the friendships and trust that were built on the great teams he played with under head coach Jim Benesh. His advice to current high school athletes is simple: It is all about the team – and team goals must take priority over any personal goals.
