Lucas Viera – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The LRHS varsity basketball team ended their regular season with losses last week to North Port High School and the Riverview Rams last week.

The Mustangs lost to North Port 72-49.

The final score to Riverview was 82-67.

The Mustangs played 22 games this season, finishing with a record of 2-20.

With their head coach leaving, the Mustangs hope to find a new coach for next season.

This is crucial as many of the members of the team are underclassmen.

Junior Leo Henderson said, “This season was somewhat disappointing, but I feel like we all put in our best effort to try to spark some growth.”

Despite their record, the team can reset their season in the district tournament.
