The varsity boys basketball team wrapped up its league season on Friday, February 13 with a 61-53 victory at Truckee. Lowry finished their regular season in third place.

“The game went as planned. The kids played really well,” coach Lee Bosch said. “It was an intense and physical game, but we were able to pull it off.”

The Bucks are going to be working on their defense in practice this week. They will also be focusing all their practices on Fernley.

The Bucks face Fernley on Thursday. The winner will then play the number two seed, Sparks. Two wins assure a state tournament birth.

The varsity girls basketball team wrapped up their season on February 13 as well, however, it ended in a loss to Truckee. Despite this, the Lady Bucks finished in third.

They will play Dayton, the number six seed. The girls face the same task as the boys. They must win two games to get to state. Coach Smith, however, thinks they are ready for the challenge.

“We’re confident,” said varsity coach Jack Smith, “We’re ready to roll.”

The Zone tournament will be held at Reed High School.
