It’s that time of year again, where the weather gets colder and it’s time to go watch the great indoor game of basketball.
After an exceptional season last year, the Lowry JV girl’s basketball team is looking promising with three returners from last season. The three returners from last season are Jasmin Landa, Rachel Sigurdson, and Tienisha Muething, they bring the team leadership and guidance on and off the court.
“We do work all day every day,” said Jasmin Landa.
The Lady Bucks should do very well season due to the coaching staff that consists of Chelsea Mendiola, Katy Shwartz, and Vince Mendiola. Coach Chelsea Mendiola has been the JV head coach for four years now and has prepared the girls for the varsity level.
The Lady Bucks have had very successful seasons under head JV coach Chelsea Mendiola, this season also has big expectations for the Lowry girl’s basketball programs.
The Lady Bucks had a great opening weekend in Lovelock.
Lowry played exceptionally well in Lovelock, they came away with a 2-1 record against Yerington, Dayton, and Lovelock. Their only loss was against Lovelock and that game ended in a stunning fashion.
Rachel Sigurdson said they were down by four in the closing seconds of the game and Alyssa Jones banked in a three-point shot that put the Bucks down by one. However, the clock ran out after the made shot with the final score of 26-25.
Lowry steamrolled the rest of their competition throughout the tournament and finished the weekend with a winning record.
“We had room for improvement as a whole and we know what we need to work on,” said Shelby Mckinnon.
