This weekend the Lowry Buckaroos headed to their second tournament of the season in Churchill County along with many other teams from the northern division including Hug, Dayton, North Valley, Spanish Springs, Fernley, Elko, Yerington, ROP, Fallon, and Silver Sage. Looking for another year of dominance in the 4A Division 1, the Bucks thoroughly showed that with yet another Jack 4 performance.
“I think we did pretty good as a team,” said Jed Johnson.
The varsity took first in the tournament and held up their championship status. Since the tournament was a dual tournament, the individual stats weren’t as important but more the team’s efforts combined.
“There were two duals we had a slight struggle with but Lowry came up on top,” said Kirk Berentsen, “So far I think we’ve got a great team and there’s always room for improvement but as long as everyone can look upon those mistakes we’ve made and try to do better I think we have a really high chance of a title under our belt. As long as we all try hard and give it our all, we’ll have a good varsity and JV.”
The Bucks showed an early look at what might be another state championship, though it may be too early to tell, there is still the essence of a dynasty at large here in Northern Nevada. Lowry’s Varsity looks forward to the Tournament of Champions in Reno next week.
