"A victory will soon unfold..."
by Joshua Lindorf
At Mountain View, there are many athletes who make teams with their friends and participate in the Orem City Rec basketball league. One of these teams is the Lit Chilis. The players on the Lit Chilis are: Josh Lindorf, Emi Cano, Caleb Horton, Kade Hernandez, Preston Madsen, Quintin Ward, Fui Kalaniuvalu, Elias Lartey, and Jacob Bailey. This team consists of MVHS soccer players, football players, and former basketball players. The Lit Chilis had a rough start to the season, losing six of seven regular season games. Playoffs began, and the Chilis had high hopes of being a “cinderella” team. The playoffs were double elimination, and the Chilis lost their first game to another team of Mountain View students, Wizards of the Demon Sword. In their next playoff game, they were able to make a high percentage of their shots which lead them to a victory. As the third game of the playoffs started, the Lit Chilis came out strong offensively, but had a tough time in the paint getting rebounds. The Lit Chilis were down by two at halftime, and in the second half they came out playing as team, scoring a quick eight points to start the half. A player from the opposing team then dropped two treys to tie the score. Foul trouble caused the Lit Chilis to fall behind the opposing team. In the final minutes, the Lit Chilis could not make a comeback. They had a fun and awesome season and look forward to next year.
