Lowry's Preston Snow goes up for a layup in Tuesday's game against Fernley.
Lowry's Preston Snow goes up for a layup in Tuesday's game against Fernley.
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.”

    Friday, December 13, 2019 1:00 AM
    The Lowry High School wrestling team hit the road last weekend for one of its longest road trips of the season to compete at the Green Valley Duals in Las Vegas.
    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.

    As December begins, so does the season for the Battle Mountain High School wrestling team. Using the early season to get as much mat time as possible, the team split up and headed out in opposite directions.  
    Coach Torrey Vezina took a young crew to the annual Hug Invitational in Reno. The tournament saw 12 teams in action and the Longhorns entered a group of four into the event and that group made the other teams sit up and take notice.
    Senior Tyler Rochester was wrestling in the heavyweight division and captured his first tournament championship with a dominating performance. 
    Freshman Julio Torres finished in second place in his first wrestling tournament ever.  Asher Bundrock and Scott Wall claimed some big wins but came up just short of placing.

    DJ Martinez paced the Longhorns with 19 points and three rebounds, while sophomore Jay Narramore netted nine points. Freshmen Austin Behrman added six points and six rebounds and Junior Vasquez and Kobe Lake each had four points.
