The 2011- 2012 season has been a
tough one for the Lone Peak boys. Despite a 1-13 record for the Big Horns, the players still feel very optimistic about their season and upcoming schedule.
“We haven’t played up to our full potential yet, and that’s what we need to do in these last games leading up to
Districts,” said Trevor House, a freshman guard for the Big Horns. The team finished off its regular season with two consecutive home games on Feb. 10 and 11, the first against rival West Yellowstone, who is also the only team that the Big Horns have beaten.
On Saturday night the team will face off against the Lima Bears. In the
last game against Lima the Big Horns fought until the end and were only four points short of a victory.
“We’ll be closing out our season with two games that if we come out play
hard, and smart, we will win,” said Haven Morris, a junior post for the Big Horns. “We’ll be able to roll in to Districts with a lot of confidence.”
First, the team has to get through these
next two games.
