On February 26, varsity boys basketball team played the last game of their season. The team lost to North Hagerstown in the Class 3A West Section II semifinal by a score of 64-53, sending them out of the playoffs.

Despite having a quick end to their season, the boys overall season was a success. The kept a 17-6 record and defeated their two biggest rivals, Oakdale (once) and Urbana (twice).  In the regular season, the Lancers beat North Hagerstown once and lost once (in overtime).

Linganore star player, Sean Lang, is only a sophomore this year. He led all scorers in the game against North Hagerstown by scoring 20 points, including 6 three-pointers. Next year, he will be able to dominate the court as an upperclassman and as a varsity veteran.

The Lancers spent most of the game trying to catch up to North Hagerstown. After a sub-par first quarter, and only scoring 5 points in the second quarter, Linganore went into the half down 28-18. After fighting back in the third quarter, North Hagerstown pulled away in the fourth quarter and ended the game winning 64-53.

The Linganore varsity basketball team may have not received the outcome they were hoping for, but the team remains hopeful for the 2018-19 season.

Junior small forward Garrett Reese said, the team plans to “work hard in the off season and attend open gyms as well as bonding as a team to become better and have better relationships,” to prepare for next year.
