The season may not have started how the JV Lady Bucks wanted but last weekend is sure to make them forget.
Lowry opened its home schedule with dominating wins against league foes North Valleys and Truckee. On Friday the ladies dropped the Panthers 54-6 and repeated the performance on Saturday with 30-point win over Truckee, 51-21.
The team has a few things to improve upon heading into the rest of the season.
“We need to improve our boxing out and our defense needs some work,” said Shantel Bernal.
McKenzi Peterson believes that her team worked very well together. The girl’s first tournament was a loss but Peterson explained how it helped them a lot as a team and individual players.
“Losing the tournament has made us learn our mistakes and allows us to better learn together and work together in order to come out as a better team and play above others,” Peterson said.
Jovi Kuskie, junior varsity’s point guard, thinks that the start of the season has also been hard but she stated that her team had been doing much better. Kuskie believed that the team started to understand the program and get the hang of it. Jovi says that her team was trying to focus on their goals.
“Our goal is to make defense the strongest component on our team,” said Kuskie.
The team has already achieved a lot of goals.
“My favorite part was playing our first home games against North Valleys and Truckee and winning,” said Shanae Smith.
