The freshman boys basketball team took on Sparks and Fernley on Friday and Saturday, February 15 and 16.
Prior to the game, Coach Jacob Evans had lots of confidence in the team.
“We just played Fallon on Tuesday (February 5) and they’re probably the most talented team we play in our league,” said Evans. “We’ve beaten them twice now. In all honesty, if we just play our game, there’s not anybody that should beat us.”
Iysis Arriola agrees with coach Evans, stating his faith in the team.
“I'm feeling great and confident about the games this weekend,” said Arriola. “I know my team and I will work hard and have fun.”
Point guard Andrew Harmon was looking forward to going head-to-head with Fernley.
“I’m excited for this weekend so we can close out the season with two more wins,” said Harmon. “We are especially focused on Fernley and hoping we can redeem our loss with a solid win.”
Overall, the boys are extremely pleased with their first season of high school basketball.
Arriola stated that “the season went pretty outstanding.”
“We went through some ups and downs but at the end, we knew what we had to fix,” said Arriola.
Harmon agreed, stating that, “the season went really well. We had enough talent to go undefeated but we lost a few winnable games along the way. Regardless, it was a good learning experience.”
Coach Evans has no doubt that the boys will be ready for JV next year.
“This group has been a pleasure to coach. They have worked hard this year, and their hard work will pay off,” said Evans.
Evans is also looking forward to next years team with the upcoming freshman.
“They have some talent. We just need to make sure that they buy into our program and represent it the way it is meant to be. They have a lot of good offensive players who can shoot coming in next year,” said Evans.
