After a regional playoff drought for the Buckaroos, this year's team had a good shot at making it to the postseason. Sadly those hopes came to an end after Truckee swept the Bucks in the last regular season series.
In the first game the Bucks lost 7-2 followed by a loss of 10-0 and a loss of 16-6 to wrap up the series.
The Buckaroos finished the season with a 10-19 record overall and a 9-15 record in league play.
Outfielder and pitcher Brendan Domire thinks this season was a big improvement over last year.
“I think that this season went a lot better than last year. We had a lot more team qualities that helped us win more games,” said Domire.
Brendan will be a senior next year and has high expectations for his final season.
“We are definitely ready to make a run for next year with how much we have improved in just the span of a year and with almost all our guys returning,” said Domire.
Pitcher and 1st baseman Jacob Marriott also agrees that the team played together much better this year.
“For once in my Lowry baseball career we learned how to play as a team as it got to about the middle of the season. Every player was behind each other and wanted to win as a team, not as an individual,” said Marriott. “Our baseball motto ‘whatever it takes’. Towards the end everyone was there for each other and played like brothers.”
Senior pitcher and 1st baseman Ren Mattson enjoyed playing with his team this year.
“I think as a whole team not only do we play better as individuals but we also play well as a squad. We all began to play more loose and had more fun playing the game and it worked out in our favor,” said Mattson.
