Fall athletes finish up seasons

Isaiah Schmidt, Sports Editor

The fall season is coming to an end, and so are the sports that accompany it. Though not all seasons are quite finished, here’s how the Bengal varsity teams are doing so far:


The varsity Bengals football team just finished the 2019 season with a 3-5 record. What stood out the most about the team this season, according to coach Mike Jones, was that the players were especially young for a high school team. This year’s team has an unusually large number of juniors, which will be helpful for coaches next year.

The Lewiston Bengal’s Volleyball team currently has an overall record of 6-6. Further information was not available at press time.

Girls Soccer

The varsity girls Bengal soccer team finished the year with an overall record of 4-13. The coach, Richard Gayler, mentioned that the team started with an impressive record of 4-1, but were unable to carry that winning streak on to the end of the season. A season highlight was winning the Border Battle Trophy with a win against Clarkston High School.

Boys Soccer
The boys varsity soccer team ranked fourth in the conference. Further information was not available at press time.

The Bengal swim team sent 23 members to regionals last Wednesday. Despite losing dominant players from last year’s team, the Bengal’s varsity swim team has managed to compete well during the 2019 season. “I do feel like a lot of people improved over the season and a lot of people broke records from last year,” said Haden Keener, a junior on the varsity team.

Cross Country

Bengals cross country runners have been on a roll this season. The boys team won first as district champs, with Caden Byrer placing first overall, and with four Bengals placing in the top eight spots. This weekend the boys team will compete at the state level in Pocatello. The girls cross country team placed fourth in the district, with Athene Leonard leading the Lady Bengals, placing 19th.
