With last year’s disappointing season behind them, the Lowry girl’s basketball team was looking forward to a return to the postseason this year.
However, their playoff hopes came to an end after a series of heartbreaking losses to Spring Creek and Elko. The girls still wanted to give their fans something to cheer about in their remaining games at home.
“At that point, we were playing for pride, we still wanted to win,” said junior point guard Carli Evatz. “Even though we were done, we still wanted to work hard and not give up.”
Lowry had five seniors on their varsity team and they made up the five starters throughout the season. They will exit the Lowry basketball program on a positive note, though, as they went 3-1 over their final four games, with a dominating win over Battle Mountain, another heartbreaker against Elko, and a sweep of the weekend series with White Pine and West Wendover on Winterfest and Senior Night.
“It’s really sad, but it will give us some motivation for next year,” said Evatz.
