The Lincoln County High School boys varsity team has made strides over the course of the 2015-2016 season.

Last Friday Lincoln hosted Needles and lost 37-25, but head coach Matt Cameron took positives out of the team’s effort. “We had a good game,” Cameron said. “It was a defensive battle by both teams. We ended up losing in the end but really improved compared our first game at the beginning of the season.”

Back on January 8, Needles beat the Lynx 58-34 at Needles, so the Lynx did a much better job this time holding the Mustangs in check. Derek Cox was the high scorer for the Lynx with six points. Derek Wagstaff and Michael Chavez each scored 11 for Needles.

On Saturday Lincoln defeated Laughlin 48-39 in Panaca. “It was a good game,” Cameron said. “The boys played hard, great defense.”

On Tuesday LCHS faced White Pine in Ely, losing 67-58.

The Lynx finish out the season tonight at 7:30 p.m. as they host Agassi Prep. Agassi is third in the Division III Southern League, with an 11-3 league record, and is 14-5 overall.

Though the wins were hard to come by this year, Cameron sees good things in the team to build off for next season.

“The boys have improved each game,” he said. “They’re starting to play really well together as a team.”
