  • Boys basketball works it out
    Tuesday, October 13, 2020 1:00 AM
    If you stop by the gym any day after school, you’ll see several basketball players working out. They’ve been at it for a couple of months. You might not recognize all of them because they’re wearing masks, but nothing slows down their moves. 
    “It’s pretty much a normal practice with a little less running,” says Dalton McNeff, a senior with three years of basketball under his belt. He’s hoping for a fourth, even if it only lasts six weeks. “The only time we’re allowed to take off our masks is during water breaks.”
    Many of their masks feature the school colors, red and black. They also depict the PCHS mascot, the Mustang.
    Varsity boys coach Jesse Canchola makes sure his players follow the NIAA rules, including health screens before workouts. “We don’t scrimmage, so there is no sort of body contact,” he says.

    A succession of Homecoming Kings and Queens grin at the Shell Station’s patrons.
    Sports is hardwired into Lovelock’s DNA. Forbes magazine just named Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Boston, Minneapolis, Detroit and Miami the nation’s sportiest cities. But the town that time forgot would top any rural list.
