    The Lowry High School wrestling team had to change some trave plans late last week. 
    The Buckaroos were set to travel to Spring Creek for the Kiwanis Invitational, but it was canceled late in the week. 
    Luckily, the Douglas Tigers were hosting an invitational as well, and the Buckaroos headed there Saturday.
    The trip paid off, as Angel Huerta won at 120 pounds and Lowry won the team title with 241.50 points. 
    Douglas was second with 166 points and McQueen (147), Spanish Springs (129), Churchill County (84) and Battle Mountain (82.5) rounded out the top six.

    “It was a wild night and we knew what kind of game we were going to get,” said LHS head coach Chad Peters. “The biggest thing we did was that we ran our stuff and didn’t get caught up in the other stuff.
