BIG SKY – The Lone Peak High School boys’ and girls’ varsity basketball teams have been preparing for this winter’s season and continuing to build the relatively new programs.
This is the fourth year for the LPHS boys’ varsity team, and Coach Al Malinowski has high expectations. With nine returning players, Malinowski says the team’s experience and depth will be their biggest assets. Having good team chemistry and 16 players to choose from will also be an advantage for the Big Horns this year.
The girls’ varsity team, in its second season, has seven players, with six sophomores and one freshman. It is a very young team. Coach Adam Olson, also assistant coach for the boys’ team, will use this season as a building year and focus on improvement.
“Basketball is very new to them, so I just want to teach them about the sport and get them going,” Olson said.
This season’s schedules can be viewed on the Big Sky School District’s athletics page.
