January 15, 2015 I The Lovell Chronicle 19 Bowling Update Brown rolls second 300 of the season BY SAM SMITH Robert Brown of Wa- piti rolled his second 300 game of the season at Rose City Lanes in the Sand- baggers League Thursday, Jan. 8. Brown rolled the 300 in the fourth game after roll- ing a 222 first game, 248 second and a 244 third for a 1,014 series. Brown bowls for the O'Reilly's team Thursdays with a 234 average. This is the sixth 300 game rolled at Rose City Lanes this season. KARLA POMEROY Lovell senior Mysen McArthur puts a move on Riverside defender Shawn Stevens during Lovell's 75-42 win over the Rebels Friday in Worland. The Bulldogs went 2-2 at the Big Horn Basin Classic.

The peted well before falling Bulldogs won both of their 73-68. games against Class 2A "We beat them in every foes, including a win over ' quarter except the second," the strong Rocky Moun- Lundberg said. "That's tain Grizzlies, and were a positive takeaway, but competitive in one of the . we've got to find ways to o3Agames. . :stop heii:leeding :when , .... Lovell opened the tour- teams re getting after us." nament Friday by crush- Beau Green knocked ing the Riverside Rebels 75-42 as all 11 players on the varsity roster scored. Lovell broke out to a 19-9 lead by the end of the first quarter, then buried the Rebels 26-11 in the sec- ond quarter to lead 45-20 at halftime. The Bulldogs outscored Riverside 19-8 in the third quarter and Riverside won the fourth 14-11. "I was pleased with the way the team came out and played this weekend," coach Craig Lundberg said. "We were hitting outside shots and we played more up-tempo against River- side. We used a half-court trap and were able to get some easy baskets. We fed off of that, and it led to us flying around and having a good time in that game. "We just blitzed them. It was good for us. It was a good way to start the tournament." CJ Murphey scored 14 points to lead the Bulldogs. Cade Bischoff and Nic Haskell joined him in dou- ble figures with 10 points each. Trace Murphey add- ed 8 points, Jacob New- man, Brandon Teter and Mysen McArthur 7 each, Dillon Schneider 5, Riley down four three-pointers in the first quarter to help Lovell to a 22-20 lead after one, but Buffalo dominat- ed the second 23-10 to lead 43-32 at halftime. "They blitzed us (in the second quarter)," Lund- berg. said. "They hit a bunch of threes (four), and Brandon (Teter) hit a three at the buzzer or we would have been down 14." Lovell outscored Buffa- lo 14-10 in the third quar- ter and 22-20 in the fourth and closed to within three points late in the game be- fore the Bison prevailed. "We had it right there. We just could not get over the hump," Lundberg said. "Our free-throw percent- age (52 percent) has to come up. If we shoot 70 percent we win. "We played well. The kids said after the game we played way too hard to lose that game. It was a battle, a fun game." Green finished with 27 points, hitting seven three-pointers. CJ Mur- phey added 17 points, Has- kell 10, McArthur 6, Teter 5 and Bischoff 3. WIN OVER ROCKY The Bulldogs played a solid all-around game to beat Rocky Mountain 53- 49 Saturday, Lundberg said. Asked the difference between Saturday's game and a 70-58 loss earlier in the season, Lundberg said defense was the key. "I think we did a couple of different things maybe they hadn't seen," he said. "We challenged their shots at the rim and rotated over on defense better than in the first game. We really controlled the boards. "Our size was a big factor, and we were able to get back pretty well on defense. The kids did a good job of being smart. We stopped the ball better as they came up the court and were getting some- body in their face. We had really good balance with Beau, Nic and CJ in double figures." Lovell led 11-9 after the first quarter and 22-16 at halftime. The Bulldogs outscored the Grizzlies 16- 14 in the third to lead 38- 30 after three, but Rocky won the fourth 19-15 to cut the final margin to four. "We led the entire game and were up by as much as 12," Lund- berg said. "They got with- in three in the fourth. We were only 6 of 14 at the line in the fourth." One thing that pleased the coach was the sports- manship displayed in the game. "The refs said after the game, 'The kids were great today in sportsman- ship. That's great for our kids and Mike's (Simmons) kids." Green and Haskell led the Bulldogs with 14 points each, and CJ Mur- phey added 10, McArthur 8, Newman 3 and Trace Murphey and Bischoff 2 apiece. LOSS TO LANDER After beating Rocky, the Bulldogs met Lander, and playing their fourth game in two days, the Bulldogs didn't rise to the challenge of taking on the tough Tigers. Lovell led 12- 11 after the first quarter, but it was all Lander af- ter that as the Tigers out- scored the Bulldogs 21-9 in the second quarter, 25-14 in the third and 22-16 in the fourth to win 79-51. "They put it on us. In the last three quarters they ran away with it," Lundberg said. "They were able to turn us over quite a bit, and easy baskets were a lot of their points. We shot the ball horribly. They would get the rebound and push it up the floor. "Our second quar- ter has been the quarter where we've struggled. As coaches we need to look at substitution patterns and maybe keep guys a little fresher. Lander shot the ball pretty well against us. We tried man and zone against them, but we were just dead." Mysen McArthur led the Bulldogs with 13 points and CJ Murphey added 12, Trace Murphey 6, Teter and Bischoff 5, Green 4 and Newman and Haskell 3 each. The Bulldogs played at Cody Tuesday night for their first conference game and fell 65-40. They are off this weekend and will re- turn to action the weekend of Jan. 23-24, hosting Pow- ell and Thermopolis, then Jackson and Star Valley on Jan. 30-31. Bulldog indoor thinclads prepare for new season BY SAM SMITH The Lovell High School indoor track squad opened up practice for the 2015 season Monday, Jan. 5, in preparation for their first meet of the year. "We have 16 athletes out this year," head coach Joshua Sanders said. "Most of them are expe- rienced. We have nine se- niors so it's a veteran group." / Among the return- ees are senior runners AJ Dickson and Andrew Mayes and junior Jaclyn Caldwell. "AJ and Jaclyn placed in the outdoor state track meet last year, but now in 3A it's going to be a lot harder, Sanders said. "So putting in miles and being involved in indoor track should help." Returning in the hur- dles is senior Eston Croft. Seniors Garet Fowler and Aaron Monterde return in the shot put. "Aaron Monterde is a good discus thrower," Sanders said, "but they don't have that in indoor." "Eston Croft placed in hurdles last year, so he's a big returner," he added. Returning in the tri- ple jump is senior Drake Welch, who placed in the event last year at State. NEWCOMERS Junior Caitlyn Lund- berg has joined the team this season. "This is her first indoor track season," Sanders said, "but she's been a good outdoor competitor for us so she'll be competing in the 55-meter dash and the long jump." The rest of the team consists of McKay Bax- endale, Ann Cerda, Sloan Colvin, Payton Hetland, Lane Hoover, Jazmyn See, Hunter Tippetts and Gavin Wilske, as well as Ben Bates and Elizabeth Gilford of Rocky Mountain. Asked how the practic- es are going, Sanders said, "We have used the season mainly to do weightlifting and also a lot of plyos. It's difficult to do a lot of tech- nique, but that's OK be- cause it's a good time to work on strength and pow- er. We have been enjoying the new weight room. "We have more oppor- tunities to get stronger. The outdoor season is a lit- tle short so this gives us more time to build." Assisting Sanders this year is Caleb Sand- ers, and Chad Lindsay will volunteer and coach the throwers. "He does a great job so we are glad he volunteers to help out," Sanders said. The Bulldogs will con- tinue with practices until their first meet of the sea- son on Friday when they travel to Spearfish, S.D., for the Stadium Sports Grill Invitational. The meet is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. HS Basketball Standings 3,4 Conference BOYS 3A NORTHWEST Conf.
