Rebound that basketball! Boys varsity basketball players work throughout the season to continue Lincoln High spirit

 Screen Shot 2016-03-28 at 11.16.33 AMBy Angel Tran – The band’s music fills the halls as we hear an accumulating crowd enter Johnson Gym, followed by numerous cheerleaders, Pomalinks, and our very own, LHS Varsity Boys Basketball team.  The popcorn, the people, the music, it’s all a part of the basketball culture we’ve had as a tradition since our first State Championship in 1914.  With five seniors this year, Aundra Gilbert, Ruon Choul, Joseph Carlson, Dakota Nilsen, and Bayley Schuman, we will be losing some of our leaders, but with four promising freshmen, Morgan Perry III, Jaden Horton, Jaylin Hunter, and Frazzie Wynn, we can be looking forward to next year’s season.

“Coming in, we knew this would be a recovery season,” head coach, Dan Noble said, “Last year we lost nine seniors, and this year we’ll be losing five. We have a good set of freshmen, I’ll give them that, but most of the teams we were playing were junior-dominated,” Noble stated, “I have to give it to Aundra Gilbert, he showed lots of leadership, and he was dependable,” Noble said. “Ruon, too. Rebounds were really good this year, handing that to the boys. It was a good season.”

Although the season was a bit rough, with 4 wins and 19 losses, Lincoln High has done an outstanding job this year of representing our school with hard work and effort.
