  • LHS looking to veterans

    Lancaster High School basketball coaches are hoping experience will be a key factor for both hoops squads this season.

    The Lady Bruins, 11-11 last winter, have nine returnees off their team which earned a playoff berth after posting a 9-5 region mark and third-place finish.

    The Bruins, 12-13 last season, also return nine players for the upcoming campaign.

    LHS boys coach Ricardo Priester said the LHS boys will have their share of youth as four of the sophomore returnees joined the Bruins late in the 2012-13 season.
