Lone Peak Big Horns

Pre-season upset

It was a double-overtime disappointment for the Lone Peak High boys’ varsity team on Dec. 8, coming up short to Roberts with a final score of 66 to 71. “It was a heartbreaker,” said head coach Brian Van Eps of the loss. “They were a good team, a lot bigger than us, and better than we expected.”

Ethan’s evolution

With 1:10 left to play in their final home game as Big Horn basketball players, Jackson Wade, Ethan Schumacher and Liam Germain watched as Head Coach Austin Barth called time out and sent in the underclassmen. The crowd roared and the underclassmen charged ahead, with freshman Nick Brester swatting away a Sheridan shot in the lane. 

He will not be denied—Frankie Starz powered to the basket and hit a team high 22 vs. Gardiner.

Starz and Bough combine for 43

Before the start of the boys’ varsity match up with Gardiner, Lone Peak’s sophomore big man Brayden Vaile sat in the stands in a shirt and tie. The 6΄3˝ backup injured his knee in the junior varsity game and that sidelined him for varsity play. He usually gets minutes in both games, but not against Gardiner.
