Lucas Viera – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- The LRHS varsity basketball team won the Police Athletic League (PAL) preseason tournament against Bayshore High School last Wednesday.

The game resulted in a 50-39 win for the Mustangs.

The tournament included other teams such as Cardinal Mooney, Braden River, and Manatee High School.

Without much practice beforehand, the team had to build chemistry through their games each week.

Head Coach Chris Kawcak said, “They did well considering we had very little practice time.”

The fall team consisted of mostly sophomores, showing promise for the team’s longevity.

“Success was achieved because the players believed in what we were doing and the effort we expected them to come out with,” he continued.

Mustangs who did not play during the fall can still attend tryouts on Oct. 31.
