Fall sports all come to a close as the 2019 year ends

Isaiah Schmidt, Sports Editor

Fall sports have all finished their 2019 season in Lewiston.

The LHS swim team sent four qualifying swimmers state-level competition. Qualifiers were Adrian Denton, Haden Keener, Luke Mastroberardino and Mitchell Reese.

Also of note, Haden Keener, a junior, managed to dislocate his shoulder while competing in the 50-yard freestyle event.

“I definitely did feel worse when I looked at my shoulder and thought, ‘That’s not right, it’s not supposed to look like that,’” Keener said. Even worse, he said, was not being able to truly compete at something he had put much time into.

Meanwhile, varsity football finished its season 3-6, unable to make it to playoffs. The team’s last game was Oct. 25 against Lake City in Coeur d’ Alene, which the Bengals lost, 28-52.

The varsity volleyball team lost a regional-level game against Post Falls, 2-3, on Oct. 22 in Post Falls.

For cross country, the Bengal boys team placed eighth for the NXR Northwest Regional Championships Nov. 16 at Eagle Island State Park. Caden Byrer lead the team, placing sixth overall. The Bengal girls team was unable to qualify for their championships.
