    The Buckaroos got a look at teams and wrestlers they don;’t see during the year and picked up two wins in five duals.
    “I knew what it would be when I signed up for it,” said LHS coach John Brooks. “I knew there would be some good teams. It would have been nice to get a couple more duals in, making that long of a trip. It was a good chance for our guys to see some different teams and wrestlers instead of going up against guys we will see each week.”
    Lowry picked up a 42-36 win over Basic from Las Vegas on the strength of a pin by Kole Mattson over David Trukeen in the first period of their 285-pound match.

  • Buckaroos hit the century mark in rout of Vaqueros
    Friday, December 13, 2019 1:00 AM
    About the only excitement left on a late Tuesday night is if the Lowry High School boys basketball team was going to score 100 points.
    To get there, the Buckaroos needed to score 23 points in the final eight minutes of play. Making it even tougher, all eight of those minutes were on a running clock when Lowry pushed the lead to 35 points with 1:33 left in the third quarter.
    Mason Ellingford ended the suspense with a put back in the final minute to give Lowry a 100-49 win over Fernley.
    “Everything started with Chance (Huitt) and Anthony (Hemp) on defense,” said LHS coach Chad Peters. “Chance got in early foul trouble with two fouls and we asked him to guard their best guy. He did a good job of staying out of foul trouble and held his man down. Chance was the only guy that did not score tonight but was just as important in the win than anybody else all night long. Anthony came off the bench and picked up the slack. He got hot, hit some shots and played great defense.”
