The varsity Lady Bucks season has come to an end. They had a difficult season but pulled together to win their last game against Elko.
According to senior goalkeeper Hannah Growcock, the season was more than just playing a game.
“We were playing the sport we loved instead of focusing on winning or losing. We were playing the sport we loved and played the best we could. I noticed we played as more of a team and that even if we did lose we still picked our heads up and played our best,” said Growcock.
Lowry played against some stiff competition and battled through many injuries but always played their best often with few substitutes.
“We had many injuries so it was a pretty rough season. Almost half the team had problems with our ankles, including me. so with many players injured, we didn't have many subs so we had to play the full game. but being well conditioned, we were able to do it. some injuries were serious which required sitting out longer, but some of us just had to get taped and just deal with the pain,” said Julianna Gonzalez.
This year coaches Ed and Jennifer Partee decided to join both varsity and junior varsity practices. Both of the teams benefited from this.
“I think the team benefited from the joined practices. It gives us the competition that we needed to use in a game situation. It also gave some of the girls a lot more exposure and experience to the style of play,” said Victoria Tirado.
Regardless of how the season began the Lady Bucks pulled through and won their last match against Elko, with Julianna Gonzalez scoring the winning goal.
