The Lowry High School varsity softball squad came into its game against Churchill County (Fallon) last Tuesday sitting in third place with a 7-2 league record just ahead of Fallon at 5-3. 
The Lady Bucks got out to a slow start and couldn’t make up enough ground as the game wore on, as they went down 9-7 to the Greenwave. 
“We didn’t play our best," said LHS coach Austin Mayo. "Mac (Salas-Begay) threw pretty well. She was pretty sharp. Defensively we played a little tight, and when you play this game tight you are going to make errors. We finished with six or seven errors and were still in a two-run ballgame. These girls don’t quit. They keep their heads up and battle the whole way through, and that says a lot about our team.”
The Lady Bucks gave up a run to Fallon in the first inning on two errors  and two more in the third inning before Lowry got on the board with two runs in the bottom of the third.
  • Last Sunday, drivers in five different classes took on their competition on the dirt track at the Winnemucca Regional Raceway.

    The family was parked backwards in their pick up truck, sitting on the tailgate watching the action from an elevated spot that gave them a bird’s eye view.
