Granger Lancers Mass Photo Post

I haven’t posted a Granger update since the heart breaker the Hillcrest Huskies handed them.  So, here’s everything that has happened since.  Except for the game at West High School.  Hooray for car problems.  Anyway…Granger @ Cottonwood Sophomore Michael Chandler Photography-2The next match was a rematch against the Cottonwood Colts, and the home floor advantage was in full effect for the Colts.  Despite hanging in there most of the game, the Lancers couldn’t hold on and lost 64-52.

And that was the season.  When all was said and done the Lancers Varsity squad finished with a record of 4-6 in region and 9-13 overall, their best season since the 2010-2011 season.  Their 9 total wins this season is as many wins as the last three seasons combined.  With half of the team graduating the team will be very different next year, but the Junior Varsity and Sophomore teams are talented and will help fill the gaps left by the outgoing seniors.  Unfortunately nobody will be able to replace the presence that was 6′ 10″ Makol Mawien, but there some promising young low post players willing to try.
