The Federal Hocking Lancers fell to the South Webster Jeeps, 51-27 at Meigs High School Wednesday night.  The Lancers had a rough season  managing only two wins all year.  However, with the majority of the team being underclassmen, Lancers Head Coach Kevin Dunigan said he has high hopes for next year .

“We gained valuable experience this year for our younger players and that will allow us to know what to expect heading into next season,” he said. “We will have a great core next year with ten juniors, ten sophomores, and at least eight freshmen; we won’t have a senior in the program as of now.”

Those younger players, who were a liability this year, are expected to be the team’s biggest asset next year.

The Lancers’ two wins this year came within a week of each other with a 60-54 victory over South Gallia, and a 48-41 win over Wahama not long after.

“We wanted to compete this year every game, and we did,” Dunigan said. “We will need to improve shooting and defense, but I think we have the talent to do good things.”

Senior Branden Gould plays his last game for the Lancers.

Dunigan said he knows his young team has room to improve.

Their main goal for next year: more wins.

Every team strives to win the Tri-Valley Conference, and Dunigan has the same goal, but sees the chance for that getting better and better with each year.

“Our goals will always start with trying to win the Tri-Valley Conference, win at home, and make it to the Convo.”
