Basketball: Trojans hope to turn around program

The Trojans basketball team hopes this is the year the program turns things around.

The team had over 50 boys come out for tryouts this year to get the season off to a good start.

Pahrump has won only two league games in the last three years and this year third-year coach John Toomer will try to change all that.

The 2014-15 record was 0-18 (0-14 Sunset, eighth). The team will have four returning lettermen and two returning starters.

The Trojans top players are Danny Foss, a senior and Nolan Toomer, a senior.

This year’s outlook is bright with the Pahrump returning four players from a team that struggled last year, but is hoping to turn things around this year.

Foss (8.7 points per game, 6.4 rebounds per game) was the team’s leading scorer and rebounder last year. Nolan Toomer added 5.7 points per game and 3.9 rebounds per game.

“We are very young this year, but looking forward to a positive hard-working season,” Toomer said. “We are looking to improve with each game we play and hope to be very competitive as the season goes on.”

Pahrump Valley opened the season Tuesday at home against Sunrise Mountain.
