As winter begins, basketball season starts up, too. Last year, the LHS varsity boys had a total of 17 wins and six losses. They had an impressive season and beat Lake City, which was the number one team in the state. They ended the season as 4th in the 5A division.
The LHS varsity girls won eight games and had 12 losses last year. During the annual Golden Throne game against the Clarkston Bantams, they won, 62-42.
The Bengals will likely have another successful season, even without players like Brayden Forsman, who graduated last year. Stand-out players this year include Drew Hottinger, James White and Reese Degroot.
The players said they feel excited to improve this season.
“I think we need to have more trust as a team,” White said.
His goal is to win the league game and go to state. Sophomore Taylor Holman, a JV player, said she hopes her team can grow closer and hopefully be undefeated.
