Freshman girls took their season road trip to Elko, Lowry’s big-time rival. The Lady Bucks won their last game against them and knew this game was going to be another hard-fought battle.
The Bucks and Elko were going head to head the whole game and nobody really got the jump on the other until the final quarter where the Bucks barely held out Elko in the final seconds
They beat Elko in a finger-biting game 41-40.
Ana Gonzalez said, “All the girls played really hard this game and didn’t quit until the final buzzer rang. I’m so proud of how our team competed and showed Elko how we run things.”
The rivalry continues and the Lowry girls leave Elko with a bitter taste in their mouths after winning the last two games.
The season may have had its high and low points, but the team has grown together to be like a family. These girls gave their all in every game, every time they stepped onto the court.“
Although this season is almost over, I’ve had a great time playing with all these great people and I’m glad to have every single person on my team. We may have not won every game but we gave it our all every time we set foot on the court. We worked really well together as a team and hope to continue playing that way for the remainder of the season.”
Mendoza said, “This season has been awesome. We hope to finish the season strong together.”
Their season may be coming to an end but they still have one game on Tuesday against Spring Creek.
