Boys Basketball Struggles but Hopes to Win Remaining Games

Kian Gibson | Staff Writer

This season has been a tough one for the Livermore High School Boys Varsity Basketball team. With a record of 4-18, wins have been scarce, but there are some positives to take from this season. Head Coach Petersdorf says, “We have had good moments and bad, but overall the kids played hard and they are learning and they are getting better.”  

The Cowboys had their White Noise game against Dougherty Valley High School (Jan. 28). The fans and team all wore white and all had a lot of fun. LHS lost 71-38 in a tough game against Dougherty. The fans still came out to support their team and provide fun energy at home. Petersdorf says, “It was very fun energy. The silent night part was super cool, the gym was loud. It was really cool energy. It was something we hadn’t done before.”

The team then went on to play Amador Valley High School and lost in a close game 68-54. This Varsity team has four games left in the season including the final game of the season against cross-town rival Granada High School (2/14). Petersdorf has one goal left this season, “Win them all. The goal is to win every game that we play and we have four games left, obviously Granada is the big one.” The team is looking to win out against their opponents Dublin High School, Foothill, Monte Vista, then Granada.
