The Lakers boys varsity basketball team is off to a hot start this season.

They are now getting ready for the meat of their schedule, diving right into conference play. The Lakers are considered to be in one of the toughest sections in the state, also known as “Group of Death.” They have their eyes set on a championship regardless, being anchored down by six-foot-ten, senior Robert Jones, and six-foot-eleven, junior, Dawson Garcia. They consider themselves a dynamic duo and see it fitting that they have to go out with a bang before Jones graduates.

Lakers head coach Bob Schweim has been coaching them before they grew to be the dominating duo they are now, and couldn’t be more proud.
