The freshman boys opened their season with a win over the Reno Huskies and new coach Jacob Evans believes there's a lot of potential in his team.
"I like what I've seen from the kids so far," said Evans. "They've been coached right for the last few years so I definitely have to give a shout out to their middle school coaches; they've done a good job."
Sam Roth was happy to make the team.
"I feel very excited to be a part of the Lowry basketball program. I hope that my team and I will get better and better as the season goes on," said Roth.
Shooting guard, Jacob Solis, also stated that he had some hopes for this years team.
"I hope we don't lose any games this year, and that we grow as a team and become better than we were when we started the season," said Solis.
Coach Evans told us he has some plans for this year's team.
"I want to put an emphasis on defense and conditioning. I can guarantee we will be working those hard," said Evans.
Evans would like to see growth from the players, as well as characteristic traits.
"I look forward to seeing growth from the players. I believe sports can have an immense impact on kids. Especially getting them to work on ambition and stuff like that because it can transfer to real life," said Evans.
