The varsity men’s soccer team played their last game of the season at home on Friday, October 26.
The team ended the season with a record of 4 wins, 13 losses and 1 tie. The team had a few close games against playoff teams like South Tahoe, Truckee, and Sparks. Lowry also was able to win on the road against Elko early on in the season.
The varsity soccer coach Steve Swanson believes that the team had a rough but good season.
“We had a difficult season. It ended up being a rebuilding season with only four seniors. A lot of lessons were learned, and experience gained,” said coach Swanson.
Senior and captain, Tony Herrera, enjoyed many memorable events this season while on the team.
“Getting to play with my brother and with the rest of the team was the best part of the team,” said Tony.
Senior and captain, Alex Herrera, will miss being part of the team.
“I really enjoyed playing this year with this team. They always made me laugh and when it came to game time they gave it all they have. I really had fun and will miss them,” said Alex.
Junior and captain, Anthony Cuevas, believes that the team did well, but needs improvement for next year.
“The season was alright, we could have done better. We still need to improve in many things but other than that, I say we did good working as a team,” said Cuevas.
Coach Swanson is hoping next year will be different.
“We are looking forward to a very successful season in 2019,” said Swanson.
With freshman Giovani Sapien leading the team with 15 goals the Bucks are in good shape. In addition to Sapien, the team will return other young players with a year of varsity experience.
