Each football season is marked by ups and downs and 2022 was no different for the Bucks. Lowry started off with four wins in a row and showed what the team was capable of.
“We started off hot and due to injuries we did not have the finish we wanted,” said coach Taua Cabatbat. “Nevertheless our kids kept competing and those who had to step up showed that the future of Lowry football will be okay. We were on record pace to have a good year in rushing, and receiving, on the offensive side, and defensive side. We were on pace to hold teams.”
Lowry ended the season 4-4 and 6th place for 3A North.
“A highlight of the season was probably winning our first four games of the season it felt like a good accomplishment,” said Brandon Cardenas.
The team started their season defeating Fernley, Battle Mountain, Wooster, and Sparks. They had not lost a single game until they lost to Elko 46-7.
Coach Cabatbat and multiple players mentioned that the injuries were a major issue in their performance this season. But this did not stop the team from working together and coming together as one.
“I think we all worked together even though we were all hurt,” said senior lineman Justin Scott. “We had a next man coming up every time and I think we finished strongly as a team.”
Although things did not end up how the Bucks wanted, they never gave up and will only work and train harder for the upcoming season.
